Bridges Cemetery

Owned by Bridges Cemetery Association


Precinct #2

Number Legible Grave Markers: 90

This cemetery is on the South-East side of Denton County. It is East of Eastvale.

It is North of Hwy 121 and East of FM 423.

The cemetery is located in The Colony. If you take 121 to Morning Star, you can drive right past it and park in front of a model home. You will need to walk all the way around the fence. The cemetery has a big chain link fence around it. A large water tower has been installed. If you get lost, look for the water tower and go towards it. At this writing, a street is being built that will run along side the cemetery.
