What an amazing cemetery. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. There is an abundance of American history represented here. The museum was closed when we went, but it was still a highlight of our Austin trip.

I went with a friend to visit someone who had just been buried there, I have always liked to visit cemeteries but this one is amazingly beautiful and peaceful! I loved the stream running through it, the sitting areas and the trees! Exuded peace and harmony!

This is a beautiful park which just happens to have a cemetery within its borders. You can wander without purpose, enjoying the park-like setting, and stumble upon the memorial to the people who helped create the Texas of today. From two Revolutionary War veterans, to three Medal of Honor recipients, the heroes truly rest here.

What a beautiful quiet spot in the midst of the loud city. It's very relaxing to walk through the graves finding where the Texas heros are buried. Stephen F Austin, Susan Dickenson, Sidney Albert Johnson, John Conally, Ann Richards and Chris Kyle are all buried here. It's a wonderful final resting place for them. Take you time and explore.

Very beautiful final resting spot for many Texans who served their state. Walked around the grounds. Saw many beautiful headstones. Visited the resting place of Chris Kyle and Tom Landry. The memorial to 9/11 was very moving. Worth a visit

Beautiful grounds. Very peaceful and amazing to see the final resting place for so many who were committed Texans. Their service in so many ways are appreciated here. From our forefather Stephen F. Austin to the very well respected Chris Kyle. Thankful to have the opportunity to take the time to pay respects.

Like many a cemetery, this one had suffered from a lack of upkeep until the great Bob Bullock decided to do something about it. The cemetery offers tours, and you may also walk the area alone. Having taken school students there many times, if you see a guided school tour going on, go ahead and join in off to the... More
