The Scott Cemetery is located near Waterloo, Alabama, in western Lauderdale County. This cemetery was established in 1869. The cemetery was originally a family burial ground. There are 64 graves in this cemetery that do not have identifying markers. The first wife of Poindexter Scott, who is buried here, was Mahala (Lamb). The Lamb family is reported to have given the plot for this cemetery. The cemetery is well maintained. The annual decoration day at Scott Cemetery is the 2nd Sunday in June.
