Ridgeway Cemetery
Paige, Texas

The Ridgeway Cemetery is located adjacent to
Ridgeway Baptist Church.  From the intersection of Highway 21
and Highway 290 in Paige, go west toward Bastrop on Highway 21.
About a mile from the intersection, you will see a sign for the Ridgeway
Baptist Church on the north side of the Highway.  Go down the gravel road,
which dead ends at the church.
