A half-dozen inscribed tombstones and three short lighter'd posts mark burials in a graveyard on or immediately NW of the grounds of the Pentecostal Church at 2150 Curtis Mills Rd. The unfenced grounds maintained as if all go with the graveyard are perhaps 70 yards NW-SE by 50 yards NE-SW, with trees spaced about in this plot. This evidently is the site identified as Curtis Mills Cemetery and Plat 26 of Wakulla County in the 1940-41 veterans' graves registration, which noted the grave of Civil War veteran Levy Davis here.

There is no conspicuous evidence of graves anyplace except in an area of 10 by 15 yards at the south point of the plot, all the markers mentioned above being there. One grave is marked by a short, upright shaft of rock. There are some small shells. Some chunks of coral ornament one grave, and a piece of brain coral of perhaps 2/3 square foot ornaments the southernmost grave. The site appears adequately maintained, but, the tombstones and other grave markers here being small and inconspicuous and there being no barrier fence, it lacks adequate protection from destructive incursions.
