Gully School House or Jackson Hill Cemetery
Town of Jasper
Walked & Photo by PHGS Member: Donna Allen July 2003
Undated directions from Walter Benedict: “The cemetery is in the Town of Jasper at the “Gully.” Go west a short distance on County Route 63 (from the intersection of County Route 31),
turn right on a dirt road, pass the old school house on the left, go 200 feet, and the cemetery is in a brush patch close to the road.”

This old little cemetery is off on a dirt road and everyone around calls it Jackson Hill Cemetery
The flag on Jackson's grave was put there by the Greenwood Legion
It is mowed but all but a few of the stones are down.
