This very peaceful and unmarked cemetery sits in the forest on a small rise very near the junction of two dirt roads: Old State Line and Fairbanks Road. While there are some newer stones, the vast majority are quite old. Some are mere fieldstones.
|Looking into the cemetery from the dirt road.|
Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren: Drive east on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) to Market Street. Turn left on Market Street and drive north through Warren, North Warren, and past Warren State Hospital. Market Street turns into US 62. In approximately 7 miles, look for the intersection of US 62 and PA 957, marked by a blinker light. Turn left onto PA 957, drive past Swede Hill Road and Town Line Road (on your right). The next intersection will be Fairbanks Road. Turn right and follow it to the T-intersection. Turn right onto Old State Line road and immediately upon topping the rise, look for the cemetery on the north side of the road. There is no sign. If you pass a house on your right, you have gone too far. There is no parking area so stop along the edge of Old State Line road.

The caption on this stone is remarkably crisp and clear, given the age of the marker:
In memory of
It appears the stonecarver ran out of room on the final line. The last word "age" is much smaller than the others.

|Dispite the location, the cemetery grounds were well maintained.|
Almost 70 burials are listed on Find-A-Grave - Fairbanks Cemetery, many with photographs of the gravestones.
