Located behind a beautiful small stone church, the Irvine Presbyterian Cemetery is a small active cemetery located in Irvine.
Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren: 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 and continue west. Merge south, following US-62 toward Tidioute/Tionesta (at this point US 6 will continue west to Youngsville). Just before you cross the Allegheny River, turn right on National Forge Road. Cross the Brokenstraw Creek, then enter the village of Irvine. Continue along, watching for the post office on the right. Across the road will be the Irvine Presbyterian Church; the cemetery is behind the church. Pull into the parking lot on the left, before you reach the church. It's a short walk back to the cemetery.
There are two small walled enclosures just behind the church, each containing gravestones.
