Located in the southwest corner of Beauregard Parish on Smith Cemetery Road. This cemetery is about 200 feet square and surrounded by piney woods. There are a lot of huge cedar trees, one big magnolia, red bud trees, azaleas, gardenia bushes, and roses. There is a comfortable bench, an expanse of green grass, and cool shade from the trees to offset the extreme heat and glare from the lovely white-painted vaults. On a hot sunshiney day, those vaults can be deadly hot. But they would sure help warm you on a cold winter day if the sun is out.

On the gate is the following sign in 1992:
Smith Cemetery Association
J.A.WILLIAMS..................743-6422
K.E.SMITH.....................743-6550
O.C.ANDERSON..................743-5455

This is one of the prettiest cemeteries in Beauregard Parish!
