Guyandotte Cemetery

-A A +A
North side of 5th Ave. between Guyan and Main sts.

Tombstones in this small, well-tended cemetery, one of the oldest in the area, give mute evidence of early settlement. One, a sandstone monument to Eleonore Letulle and her daughter, who both died in 1836, is inscribed partially in French and was carved in Cincinnati.
