Starlight Cemetery

Starlight Cemetery is on the grounds of the Starlight Missionary Baptist Church which is on Martin Luther King Drive in DeRidder, LA. It is a very large cemetery with the graves scattered--not clustered as we are used to seeing. It is in an urban location but has trees growing on three sides.

We were looking for Community Cemetery when a friend volunteered to take us to Starlight. Thanks go to Audrey Reid of Sugartown for help in locating this cemetery.
