Curtis Cemetery Robinson Run Road Roane County, WV

Directions: From Roane County Court House go east on Main Street (towards Arnoldsburg on Route 119), at the red light by Wendy's take a right. (You will now be going south towards the old gradeschool.) Just after passing the old gradeschool take a left onto Route 36. You will pass through Clover and Looneyville. You want to turn onto Johnson Creek Road (it's on your right...). This road is at the top of a hill, with a two storey white house on the corner. This road becomes Robinson Run Road in about 3 miles.
