Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Lafayette Protestant Cemetery is located at the south corner of the intersection of West Pinhook Road and East University Avenue with the Lafayette Masonic Cemetery adjacent to the southwest. The two cemeteries have continuous identical perimeter fencing and even signs that are identical in style so that they appear to to be different sections of one cemetery. The cemeteries ave separate entrances from Pinhook Road with signage but there is no dividing fence. The cemetery areas may be distinguished by the orientation of the tombs. The Lafayette Masonic Cemetery's graves are facing northeast while the Lafayette Protestant Cemetery's graves are facing northwest. The sign at the entrance just says Protestant Cemetery, but the cemetery is officially named Lafayette Protestant Cemetery. Although the cemeteries themselves are more recent, the history of the two groups cooperation goes back to1857, when the Lafayette Masonic Lodge, Hope Lodge No. 145, received its charter. The first building that they used was also used for Protestant services.
