Home > Cemeteries > Limestone Cemetery


Limestone Cemetery is a small cemetery located south of Tidioute on PA Hwy 337. The little sign for the cemetery is perched on a tall post on the left side of the road and is easily missed unless you watch for it. The well-maintained grounds are not visible from the highway.

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). In approximately 16 miles through beautiful countryside along the Allegheny River, you will come to the intersection where you can turn right and cross the bridge into Tidioute. Do not make that right turn! Instead continue on a short distance and watch for Rt 337 on the left. Turn onto that road and wind up the hill, passing the turnoff to the Allegheny National Forest picnic grounds and Tidioute Overlook (on the left; it's worth a stop).

At the intersection of Red House Hill Road (on the right), Kelly Hill Road (straight ahead), and Rt 337, bear left to continue on Rt 337. A short distance along this road, look for a gravel road on the left with the small sign (see above) marking the entrance to the cemetery.

You have driven too far if you spot Economite Road on your right.

A dirt track leads back into the cemetery,
which is just inside the woodline on the right.
There is ample parking on the grass at the end of the road.
