Mount Wood Cemetery is located on the west side of Mount Wood Road in Wheeling, West Virginia (Ohio County). The coordinates are 40° 4' 53" N, 80° 43' 20" W.
Mount Wood Cemetery is large, and it is still active. It is adjacent to the Mount Wood Jewish Cemetery. There are many old, interesting gravestones, and there is also a beautiful view of the Ohio River. However, many gravestones have been damaged over the years. Much of the damage is from neglect, but some is a result of vandalism. The cemetery grounds were very well maintained when we visited in November 2006.
Many thanks to Tim Fox and Justin Huntsman for visiting this cemetery with me!
