Search Spring Hill Cemetery:

From Alexandria, take US Hwy. 71 south and turn right on LA Hwy. 112
(at the caution light in Lecompte). Continue through Lecompte, and turn left
just BEFORE Linzay and Red Hill Cemeteries (about .3 mile). Springhill Cemetery
is about 1/3 mile up this dirt road.

The cemetery is very large, situated on a hill. Many vaults and slabs are broken or
sunken in the ground; several depressions are visible as most unmarked burials once
had slabs of concrete or brick vaults. Some graves in the rear of the burial ground
have slid downhill toward a ravine that leads to the bayou.

Springhill is typical of so many of the older African-American cemeteries in Rapides
Parish. The neglect of many graves is in direct contrast with other large vaults
built of white brick, well marked with beautiful stones, under good fence. The cemetery
covers several acres covered with large hardwood trees and several large magnolias.
A driveway divides the cemetery in half.
