Enterprise Cemetery
Southwest Township

Home > Cemeteries > Enterprise Cemetery


The small Enterprise Cemetery is tucked behind a church, hidden from the road. The majority of the stones are old, but the grounds are well kept. Surrounded on two sides by forest, this cemetery is also known as the United Methodist Church Cemetery.

View of the cemetery from the gravel entrance road.
Looking into the Enterprise cemetery

Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren (about 23 miles; 35 minutes): go west on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) along the Allegheny River. US Hwy 62 will join with US 6 before you leave Warren and the highways will become a free-access 4-lane. Drive through Starbrick, west to Youngsville (where PA 27 will join with US 6), and on to Pittsfield where US 6 will split with PA 27. Stay on PA 27 through Garland and Grand Valley. At the village of Enterprise, turn right toward Titusville and look for the white United Methodist church close on the right side of the road. The graveled entrance to the cemetery is on the right just before you reach the church - easy to miss! (A parking lot on the far side of the church makes a convenient turn-around spot.)

The gravel road will dip down off the highway and as you drive past the church, the cemetery will come into view. Parking is limited - there are homes across from the cemetery - so best to park as soon as possible and walk into the grounds.
