Cemetery notes and/or description:
Ennis Colored Cemetery (aka Ennis Memorial Cemetery) is a black cemetery located immediately north of Myrtle Cemetery, beyond the tree line along the creek. There is no bridge allowing access to Ennis Memorial from Myrtle. From Business 287, turn on N. Clay to Belnap. Jog the "L" on Belnap to N Clay again, then right to W. Denton. Turn left on Denton, past the football stadium, to dead-end at the cemetery.

Ennis Memorial was originally a burial ground for servants of nearby white residents. When St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church was first built in the 1870s, it was located adjacent to the cemetery, and the small burial ground became the cemetery for members of the congregation. The Church was destroyed by fire in 1914 or 1915. The congregation relocated, and the cemetery fell into disrepair. It was not until 1961 that it was officially recognized as a cemetery in the State of Texas. See for more information.

The cemetery is fenced and mowed, but rather rough and not well-groomed. Some stones are broken, and many graves are unmarked.
