Hello! Come take a small walk with me through the old Leesville Cemetery. This very vast but quiet cemetery sits on about 6 acres of land and is located off LA HWY 8 in Leesville, Louisiana. The original name for the cemetery is “Ferguson – Dennis Cemetery” but local residents refer to it as the Leesville Cemetery. I was reading through what small historical information I could find about it here but there wasn’t too much out there. I did come […]

Universal Pictures is releasing a 30 film blu-ray collection on August 28, 2018 which features originals like Dracula, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, etc. It also […]
