St. Mary's Baptist Church


St. Mary's Baptist Church is located on St. Mary's Road in Wakefield, Louisiana. This church was rebuilt in 1966. When I attended Grandma Carrie's funeral, St. Mary's was a little, white, wooden church in the woods.  Unfortunately, I was not into family history at the time and I did not take a picture of the church.

There are two plaques on the front of the church.  The one on the right, states:
