Mount Union Cemetery is located just outside the east border of the city of Philomath, Oregon. It is bordered on the west by Mount Union Avenue, (which took its name from the cemetery) and on the north, east and south by farmland. It is located approximately one-quarter of a mile north from the intersection of Bellfountain Road and Plymouth Drive. The cemetery is situated on the eastern slope of the hill with views to the north, south, and east. A pleasant low-density residential neighborhood is located to the west, across Mount Union Avenue from the cemetery.

Grave rows run north and south. Most of the tombstones and inscriptions face west, with the stones placed at the west end of the grave. Older sections are recognizable, but new and old burials are intermixed. Scattered shrubs and grasses are interspersed among the graves, along with several big-leaf maples and Douglas Fir trees.
