(Old) Pisgah Cemetery
Cumberland, MS

This is an inactive cemetery located in a wooded area in Sec. 4 R12 T20, just over one mile east of Highway 15 in Webster County and about two miles from the intersection of Highway 15, and the Natchez Trace Parkway.  An old Methodist Church was the original reason for the cemetery, but it has long since been abandoned and no building remains.  The Church was named Pisgah or Mt. Pisgah, but locally it has been known for over 50 years as Old Pisgah.
