Rockbridge Baptist Church and Cemetery is located on Rockbridge Church Road in rural northern Washington County.  If you take Hwy 555 north from Springfield, in about 13 miles turn right onto Hwy 1796.  In about a mile 1796 joins with Hwy 1754.  In another mile Hwy 1796 turns left.  In less than a mile Rockbridge Church Road is a right turn.  The cemetery is just down the road on the left.
