Beautiful Cemetery

Grounds are beautiful and there is a small "visitors center" with little exhibits with some historical information. We looked around there and then walked through the cemetery.

The Texas State Cemetery in Austin offers a final resting place for generations of Texans including war heros, elected officials, and prominent leaders. It is a beautiful place to just visit and walk. Take your time and read the headstones and monuments. It's a history lesson in a beautiful setting.

If you are interested in history or simply want to take a serene walk through beautifully kept grounds, this is the place to visit. We saw many final resting places of Texas and American heroes. We were both unusually quiet when we left. It will make you stop and reflect how blessed we are and how our good fortune comes... More

Liked that it contains the shorted highway in Texas and of course the serenity and beauty of the cemetery. The visitor's center was closed when we visited, so were not able to obtain any information about location of historical figures. Not much signage or historical markers for information.

The cemetery is primarily designed for Texas big shots, but includes their spouses. There is a large area just for Confederate soldiers and their wives. The thing that makes this cemetery move to "excellent" is the beauty of the design. There are places to sit in the shade and simply contemplate, places to sit (again in shade - this is... More

Fantastic Cemetery and in the heart of Austin. Who knew. So much history put to sleep here and pieces of history laid to rest..

see dead people... Yes, this really is a cemetery but it has a lot more to offer you than a final resting place. Here you will find amazing stories about early Texans along with manicured grounds, gorgeous flowers, a lovely meandering stream and a visitor's center. Each year, thousands of visitors come through the gates seeking information about Texas history... More

Stopped by to see Stephen F Austin's grave, but was absolutely blown away by the impeccable grounds! Very historical and I'm sure I could have spent all day here!
