TWILIGHT CEMETERY

(Black Cemetery)

La Porte,Texas
By George E. Wolf Jr./2000

This cemetery is located at 11th and at the dead end of Adams, on the left side across from a large warehouse.
There is large sign at the entrance of the cemetery, TWI-LIGHT CEMETERY. The cemetery is kept up real nice and is in great shape.
This cemetery is used by the black community of La Porte,Texas.
It seems to have been stated around the 1920's or 1930's? But the oldest grave date found is 1947.
