From the center of Loganton (the intersection of Routes 477 and 880), travel East on 880 (a left turn if coming off I-80).  Travel on this road for exactly 5 miles.  In the midst of the village of Carroll, turn left onto a road which is a continuation of 880.  Follow this road up the mountain for 1.6 miles.  Here, make a left turn onto Harbaugh Road and follow it for 1.3 mile, past the Mount Union Cemetery, to the Green Grove Cemetery on your left, beside a weedy lane.  Note that the entire length of Harbaugh road is variously gravel and dirt, and goes through a long stretch of desolate wooded area.

Green Grove Evangelical Church was established by adherents of the Evangelical Church on the Loganton Mountain.  The church building was built in 1873 and a cemetery was laid out adjoining the church.  The congregation was very small, and by 1918 there were only eight members left.  The church was closed, with some controversy, and the structure was sold to J. I. Shaffer.Since the Loganton fire had ravaged the churches of that town, J. I. Shaffer agreed to sell the Green Grove building to the Loganton Evangelical Church to build a new parsonage.  Before this could be done, however, lightning struck the Green Grove Church and it burned to the ground.

George Rockey, whose family were members of the Green Grove Church for years, took care of the cemetery for an extended period of time.  With his death in the past year, the cemetery is left without a caretaker and has fallen into weeds and brush.
