Fire Baptized Cemetery

Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri 65473, United States

Created By: Pulaski County Tourism Bureau & Visitors Center


Most interred here were born in the late 1800’s. The stone work was built by the German POW's during WWII. Three of the 13 people buried there died in 1934, with two unrelated people dying within three days of each other. Interments that are held here require the graves to be hand dug due to the stone wall.
