Old Soldier's Cemetery is located in Denmark, TN. off of TN-223 across from The Denmark Presbyterian Church building. It is no longer used and is maintained by The Big Black Creek Historical Association.

The Big Black Creek Baptist Church was organized by Obidah Dodson at the springs of the Big Black Creek in a brush arbor. He built a campground at this site and met there each year. The Baptists met in the school house in Denmark, along with the Methodists and Presbyterians, at separate times. The congregation later built a church on the big hill in Denmark. This old cemetery, dating back to about 1826, is located behind the Steve Carter house. There is a legend that gold from a robbery of the Brownsville Bank is buried here between the graves of two children. The land for the cemetery was donated to the Big Black Creek Baptist Church by Joab Wilson and he is buried there. It may be the oldest in Denmark, the church was founded in 1823 by Obadiah Dodson.
