Beach Road Cemetery
This cemetery was established in the early 1800s by the Beach Family. Over the years the markers have deteriorated and been vandalized so that very few of the original remain. A large monument was placed in the cemetery in the middle of the 1900s. Engraved on it are the names and burial dates of the original graves. Located in the northern portion of the City of Troy, it is in an area surrounded by residential homes. There is a pedestrian entrance located on Beach Road, but there is no access for vehicles to the area. The City of Troy maintains this cemetery
