Starting at the junction of U.S. Route 93 and Nevada State Route 318, the Schofield Cemetery can be found by traveling north on Nevada State Route 318 (which traverses the farming community of Hiko, Nevada) for two miles. The cemetery is located on the hillside about 1/16 of a mile west of Nevada State Route 318, midway between two small natural lakes called: Nesbit Lake on the north and Frenchie Lake on the south.

This land was first used as a cemetery in 1916. It is well fenced and cared for even though there is no grass. All but 2 of the graves are extended family of the Schofields who originally settled the land between the two lakes mentioned above. There were 41 graves on March 30, 2007.
