You will come to the intersection of Hwy 140 and Hwy 53.  Go straight across the four lane Hwy 53 at the traffic light. Go approximately eight miles.  This road dead ends on Hwy 27.  Turn left, you will go less than ½ mile.  The white church is on the right side of the road.  The sign now reads Rome Midway Primitive Baptist Church.  The cemetery is on the hillside behind the church.
