Highland Baptist Church Cemetery

There is one church and two cemeteries in this location. The cemetery immediately behind the Highland Baptist Church is the Highland Baptist Church Cemetery. East of it, however, surrounded by a chain link fence, is the Aldersgate United Methodist Church Cemetery. In 1986 the points of contact were Chas. Hendrix, (850) 587-2145 (Baptist side) and Mr. Clark, (850) 587-2296 (Methodist side).

Directions: From Pensacola, drive north on US29, past Cantonment, to Molino, and turn right on Molino Road (SR182). Drive approximately 1/2 mile, turn right on SR95A (Old US29), and drive approximately 1/4 mile to the Highland Baptist Church and cemetery on the left side of the road.

The Highland Baptist Church Cemetery was surveyed and compiled by Evan Strohl and Beverly & Don Kenney and other members of the West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS) in 1986 and published in Volume 1, Gravestone Registry, Escambia County, Fla. It was transcribed from that publication and contributed to the Escambia County USGenWeb by WFGS member and former webmaster, Ginny Deagan, 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.
