Dare County Cemeteries

Graveyard Landing Cemetery - Colington

From Hwy 158 in Kill Devil Hills at mile post 81/2 take Colington Rd. (SR 1217) and go west for about 4-5 miles until you come to Colington Harbor Subdivision main gate on the left.  Just inside the gate and to the left, take Harbor View Drive and go 1.7 miles then turn left on Sir Hart Court and go 1/10 mile.  The cemetery will be on the left inside a wooden fence and close to the road.  The cemetery is in a wooded area with briars and undergrowth.  The fenced area is about 50' square.  Deterioration of the wooden and homemade cement markers makes reading impossible.  Only one tombstone can be read.  Photographs were taken in 2009 & submitted by Miles Midgette Google Maps for this cemetery.  In 2014 this cemetery was surveyed again by Doris Ann White Younts.  She took the bottom 2 photos above and the extra photo of Harriet Midgett.
