Poplar Dell Cemetery

Poplar Dell Baptist Church is located at 2631 Highway 4-A, west of Century, Florida (32535). From U.S. Highway 29, turn to the west on County Road 4-A, which is just north of the intersection of U.S. 29 and County Road 4 west. About two miles at a stop sign, Highway 4-A turns left. The church is about another three miles on the north side of the road.

According to a Church Directory published in 1976, the church was built as a non-denominational church in 1910. On June 4, 1911, a group formally organized the church, and called it Poplar Dell Baptist Church. It was so named because of the poplar trees in a branch head nearby. The cemetery, located adjacent to the church building, apparently had a few graves for some time, but the church waited until 1966 to divide the property into lots. It was agreed then to allow each church family to have a plot at no charge, while persons outside the church would be required to pay a fee.

The cemetery was surveyed and compiled in October 1998 by Mr. & Mrs Jerry Simmons. Earliest burial is 1963.
