The names of the Freedom Separate Baptist Church, Freedom Church of God, and Freedom Cemetery are derived from an elevation of land there known as Freedom Ridge. From November 7, 1907 to June 15, 1935, the area was serviced by an Adair County post office located in what was known as Roy. It is no longer identified on present-day maps, but the Roy post office building was located less than a mile south of the cemetery on what is now called Columbia Lane. The present mailing address for the church is Russell Springs which is in the next county to the east, Russell County. Within Adair County, the nearest town to the cemetery is Gentrys Mill, which is also served by the Russell Springs post office. The Freedom Ridge community, known as Freedom, consists of two churches, a cemetery, homes, and farms. Columbia is the county seat of Adair County; and Freedom Cemetery is located about eight miles east of Columbia. To travel to Freedom Cemetery from Columbia, drive on Russell Road (Highway East 80) and turn right on Freedom Church Road. The Freedom Cemetery will soon appear on the left side of the road nestling Freedom Separate Baptist Church. The most accurate location of the Freedom Cemetery is at Freedom, Adair County, Kentucky; although Freedom does not appear on many maps of Adair County. --ehlII
