Lake Charles’ 98 acres spreads along St. Charles Rock Road, the old rock road to St. Charles, and was designed, surveyed, and subdivided by landscape engineers at Joyce Surveying Company Cemetery Engineers of St. Louis, Missouri. The cemetery’s original name was Lake Charles Burial Park; later, the name was changed to Lake Charles Memorial Park, and the current family owners took the “new” name, Lake Charles Park Cemetery, from the front of the gatehouse.
