Cottage Hill Community Cemetery

1986: The Cottage Hill Community Cemetery is located at the Cottage Hill Methodist Church. It was established for the church members around November 1962.

Directions: Drive north on US 29 past Cantonment to CR95A (Old US 29). Turn right on CR95A to Williams Ditch Road. Turn right on Williams Ditch Road and drive about one mile. The church and the cemetery are on the left side of the road. At the time of the survey, the point of contact for this cemetery was Bobby Creighton, (850) 968-9798, or Vance Walker, (850) 968-5186.

This cemetery was surveyed in the early 1980’s by Evan Strohl and other members of the West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS). The results were published in Volume 1, Gravestone Registry, Escambia County, Fla. It was transcribed from the original survey and contributed to the Escambia County USGenWeb by Janice Ward, with permission of the WFGS Board of Directors.


2006: We previously called this the Cottage Hill Methodist cemetery, but I cannot yet confirm that this wooded cemetery belongs to the adjacent Cottage Hill Methodist Church. Some call this large cemetery a "community cemetery." The large, grassy field you will cross to get there has less than 10 headstones and may belong to the Methodist Church.

The 100 year old cemetery measures about 150' x 400', is unfenced, but surrounded by heavy woods on all sides. There are nearly 200 headstones here, many are old.

The McGlothren family has lived nearby on Cottage Hill Road for more than 50 years and may be able to answer some questions.

Directions: Beginning in Cantonment at US29 and C-184, drive north (right lane) 0.1 miles to CR-95A and take it. Continue on CR-95A for 1.4 miles to Cottage Hill Road and turn right. Drive east for 0.2 miles (partially dirt) to the cemetery on the right. You will see a field almost devoid of headstones. Drive across this grassy field toward an opening in the wooded area and you will see the large community cemetery surrounded by woods. GPS = N30o 37.818' W087o 18.973'
