Cemetary Line


Sebring, Highlands County, FL Off of Vaughn Road

     This is a privately owned Cemetery and appears to lay on part of what was once the Florida homestead of Samuel E. Prescott.  A memorial marker, markes his burial spot today with his orginial marker now acking as a footstone.

     From US Hwy 27 take Hwy 66 West travel about 3-4 miles down to State Road 635 North or to the right.  Travel North to Vaughn Road to your left or West again.  Follow Vaughn Road to itís end.  Turn right and go through what appears to be a gate for an orange grove sign says (No Tresspassing)  as long as you remain on this road or turn around at the telephone pole near the gate to the old Cemetery and DO NOT enter the Grove, your fine and will not get into any trouble.  This is because of the newer CANKER LAWS in Florida which protect the Citrus Growers from the spread of this killer of Fruit for which our state generates a large amount of revenue.

Ok about 1/2 way down this dirt road off Vaughn Road you will note a tall fence to the left.  Also there is a telephone pole about that same place along this road.  If you will look close you will notice a gate.  It is not locked.  It appears to be but I have never found it locked.  This lets you into the Cemetery which you should be able to see at this point.
