The Bunn Cemetery is one of our oldest cemeteries in this area, located in the Bethany area between Lewiston Highway and Benevola Highway in South Pickens Co. on land presently owned by the Summerville Family.
The land was originally owned by Phillip Noland and was the burial ground for the Noland and Locke families. In recent years it is also referred to as the "Noland Cemetery" but original name was "Bunn Cemetery" as a Mr. Bunn lived adjacent to the cemetery.

The first marked burial was in 1837 and the last burial was in 1914. The cemetery can only be accessed by walking through the woods. It is a beautiful area with lovely old cedar trees with the old fence remaining although fallen down. It is the resting place for some of our very earliest settlers in the Bethany area.
