  • For a plot of land to symbolize death, this particular cemetery gives a more tranquility beauty instead. Trees, Flower gardens, and a stream that moves throughout the land. From soldiers of the Texas revolution, Civil War, the world wars, and beyond, to famous politicians, and other key figures of Texas history are interred in this place. It is a place to talk a walk and to pay your respects towards these folks long passed.
  • We initially stopped here because my buddy who still plays Pokemon Go said he needed to catch a Snorlax or something haha. Turns out it was a great place to walk around, get some fresh air, and explore! Cool place!
  • Gorgeous, lush grounds with on site tour guides! Worth a visit!
  • I have not visited yet but I hope to visit very soon and pay my respects to my space flight hero Capt. Gene Cernan The last man on the moon. He is resting on top of Monument Hill.
  • great place for peace
