Melancholy, but beautiful

Visiting here makes me a little sad, but it is a beautiful memorial. You can do a drive by, or walk the cemetary.

Lots of history with notable TX names. More impressed with older headstones. Disappointed in older section, some war headstones were replaced with large ones causing them to look out of place.

Prepare yourself to spend more time than you had planned on when visiting this historic cemetery. History of Texas from the forming of the state to the present. A must for history buffs.

A bit off of the beaten path but it was a beautiful stop and a place which my history loving wife has been wanting to go to for a while...as you walk through the grounds you will see a wide variety of individuals who are laid to rest here from former Texas governors to military heroes...

I have never heard of a state cemetery. We only went because it was a couple of blocks from where we were staying. You can take an audio tour or a guided tour - we just walked around with the map which was fine. There are many famous Texans buried here like James Michenor, Tom Landry and Barbara Jordan. There...

A very well-maintained and respected place of honor ion the middle of Austin. Both history and nature buffs can appreciate the grounds. Take a camera and a smart phone to Google some of the sights here. The history is fascinating.

I'm a fan of history and solemn places, so I respect and appreciate the atmosphere of this final resting place. The lawn is beautifully manicure and is nice to walk around. There is a small hill you can climb and sit on and take it the view. It's a good place for contemplation and practicing gratitude. If you're doing a... More

This is a wonderful Texas history lesson. There is a small museum and the cemetery. Get the guided tour and see the history come to life as the tour guide tells about the life of Confederate generals, Governers, Texas Rangers and more. See elaborate headstones and the monuments as well. Went with 7th grade class and learned more than I... More

If you enjoy history, as my husband and I do, you will enjoy stepping back in Texas History on this visit to the Texas State Cemetery. It is a tranquil setting of beautiful landscaping, giant oak trees, a stream with a waterfall and beautiful monuments. There is plenty of open space too as there is room for many more Texas... More
