Beulah Chapel Cemetery

This pristine cemetery is in the Byrneville community. It contains about [90] marked graves in 2006, parking is adequate, and there are homes nearby. The cemetery is well-kept, unfenced, and is behind the church. The grounds are approximately 150' x 200', and the cemetery is framed by trees and a wooded area in the back. The land was donated by Mr. and Mrs. W. M. “Bud” and Lena Taylor, according to Volume I of The Heritage of Escambia County. A couple of the graves reveal death dates into the mid-1960’s. There are numerous headstones which display “cemetery art” and etchings. Standing near the rear is a pole flying the American flag. The land for this cemetery was donated by Wesley Taylor.

Directions: Beginning in Cantonment at US29 and C-184, drive North about 27.3 miles to CR-4 West, in the town of Century. Turn left on CR-4, and drive west about 3.7 miles to the traffic light at Byrneville Crossroads. Turn right here onto CR-4A, and drive 1.3 miles north to the Beulah Assembly of God Church on the left. Beulah Chapel Cemetery is in the rear.

Common names seen are Burkett, Glenn, Kimmons, and Wiggins. There is a sign nearby the cemetery advising: “See Pastor, (850) 256-4697, before disturbing.” All in all, this is very peaceful place to visit.
