To reach the cemetery from Florence, Alabama, travel Alabama Highway 20 west for 14.6 miles. Turn right onto County Road 5 and go about 4 miles to the cemetery on the right side of the road. The Austin Cemetery originally was in another location on land that the Indians cleared. Due to it being in a low wet area, it was moved to its present location. There are several markers in this cemetery that are very difficult to read. A few were impossible to read due to deterioration of the surface. The cemetery appears to have been targeted by vandals in the past, as many stones are broken or missing. The cemetery is maintained well otherwise. The Liberty Baptist Church, which sits about 2 miles south, started the cemetery, but as time passed, deceased members were buried in other cemeteries. Mr. Robert Austin, who is buried here, gave the land for the cemetery. A large amount of land along the Natchez Trace Parkway & Big Cypress Creek is still owned by members of the Austin family.

 

The Austin Cemetery is located in west Lauderdale County, Alabama near the Threets Crossroads community. This cemetery has approximately twenty-five graves marked only with stones. It is said that there are more that are not identifiable at all, even by way of depressions in the ground.
