This is a beautiful little cemetery sitting on a gentle hilltop with an expansive view of the rolling hills. There are at least twelve burials with the surname Kitchen, thus the unusual name of the cemetery.
Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren: go west on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) along the Allegheny River. Follow the four-lane Hwy 6 into Starbrick. Slow down and watch for the Yankee Bush Road intersection at a traffic light and turn right onto the two lane road. Many homes dot the way up the hill, through forest.
Keller Road, intersecting Yankee Bush Road from the left, can create some confusion - bear right and then in a very short distance, turn left at the Y intersection and continue on Yankee Bush Road. (Just to add to the fun, the road on the right is named Follett Run Road.) Enjoy the view along this hilltop road. Carrington Hollow Road, on the left, emerging from the forest is your first signal that you are approaching the cemetery. Kitchen Cemetery sits beside and is very visible from the road.
To park, drive just past the cemetery and turn left onto a grassy lane adjacent to the grounds.

The grounds are level and well-maintained.
There are fewer than 200 graves listed on Find A Grave-Kitchen Cemetery, many with photographs of the tombstones.
