Located on a red-clay dirt road named McMillan Road, Hannatown Cemetery serves a rural farming community named Hannatown. There is one driveway to enter this well-kept cemetery with many large shade trees on the grounds. A chain-linked fence surrounds part of the cemetery but there are many graves outside of the fence.
