Lovedale Baptist Church Cemetery

Located just a couple of miles northeast of Two Egg, the community of Lovedale has been an important part of the area since the late 1800s. The community is unique among similar Northwest Florida crossroads because it was built around a central square. Although there were originally businesses and other structures there, today the peaceful community is best noted as the site of Lovedale Baptist Church and Cemetery.
The cemetery, which includes graves dating as far back as the late 1800s, is beautifully maintained by local residents.
Tombstones here tell the stories of numerous local families. One is even inscribed with a drawing of a man fishing.
Along with Two Egg, Lovedale has for many years been one of the principal communities making up Jackson County's Central voting precinct.
