LOCATION: Travel Highway 25 South from Iuka, Mississippi, to the Midway Community in Tishomingo County. At Midway, turn left off of Highway 25 South onto County Road 957 (Rock Crusher Road) and travel seven miles. Shortly after crossing the Alabama state line, Liberty Road will be on the right side of the road. The cemetery is directly across this junction on the left.

This African American cemetery was photographed and surveyed by Bob and Cindy Whirley Nelson on April 5, 2006.

A total of 309 grave sites were photographed. Other grave sites were not visible due to undergrowth. It is believed that there are numerous other burials in this cemetery.
