Cemetery notes and/or description:
Bosco Baptist Church Cemetery is located in Ouachita Parish on Blankston Rd., just off Hwy. 165, at Bosco, near the Caldwell Parish line. The land for the church was donated by Mr. Samuel Wesley Pipes of Bosco.

The cemetery was established in 1943, 10 years after Bosco Baptist Church was established, with the first burial of Mrs. Violet B. (Spillers) Hooter, daughter of Victor "Buck" and Ada Spillers of Bosco and first wife of Will Faulk Hooter. Mr. Oscar Hooter, Violet's father-in-law, suggested it be named Violet Cemetery. It is located across the road from Bosco Baptist Church on land purchased from Davis and Mamie (Tarver) Franklin of Bosco. The cemetery is well organized and maintained.

The neighborhood men built Bosco Baptist Church (2nd sanctuary) and helped to dig the first grave in Bosco Baptist Church Cemetery, both in the early 1940's. The first sanctuary was in the old one room Bosco School House facing Pipes Lane. It closed when Logtown School opened at Fondale in 1929. Four years later, it became Bosco Baptist Church. Our present church (3d sanctuary) was built in 2009.
