|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
In Leesville, take LA Hwy. 8 West toward Burr Ferry, about 5 miles. Canaan Baptist Church is located on the right side of this highway; the fenced cemetery is to the left of the church. Although the cemetery is quite large, the graves are sparse and scattered within the rows. A sign on the walkway just inside the front gate reads: "The Canaan Cemetery was dedicated 16 February 1963 Rev. John C. Heard, Pastor." The grounds are kept cleaned and mowed by the Vernon Parish Sheriffs Department.
