Rocky Mount Cemetery - Bossier's Virtual History Tour

Join the Bossier Parish Libraries History Center for a virtual tour of Rocky Mount Cemetery. This is one of the oldest cemeteries in Bossier Parish with the oldest recorded death date of 1849. Rocky Mount was a thriving community from the 1850s until the late 1880s, when the railroad bypassed the town. Most commercial interests then moved to nearby Alden Bridge.

Funding for these grants has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and administered by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan with additional funding provided by the Union Pacific Foundation.
