Dry Springs Cemetery

The Dry Springs Cemetery was founded in 1876 and is located next to the Dry Springs Holiness Church in Northwest Escambia County near Pineville at 4521 South Pineville Rd. The property was donated for the church and the cemetery by La Floresta Perdido Land Company. This is now a wildlife management area.

Directions: Drive north on US Hwy 29 to Molino, turn left on Hwy 97 to Walnut Hill, turn left on Rd 99A (Arthur Brown Rd) to the end at Pineville, then left on Pineville Rd. The cemetery is located on the right several miles from the intersection of Pineville Rd. and Arthur Brown Rd. The cemetery has perpetual care.

I would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Roy Foster for their help in obtaining the information on the cemetery. Contact Mr. Roy Foster at (850) 327-4328 for more information.

The Dry Springs Cemetery was surveyed by members of the West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS) in the 1980’s and published in Gravestone Registry, Escambia County, Fla. It was transcribed from that publication and contributed to the Escambia County USGenWeb in April 2003 by Don and Bernadette Godwin with permission of the WFGS Board of Directors.

Please send corrections or additions to Evan Strohl, Chairman, WFGS Cemetery Committee, or the Webmaster. All sources will be credited.
