Well maintained cemetary,Still in use, with the grave of Jesse James, the one that is recognized by the James Family as the real one. Also the graves of Granbury, and some of the children of David Crockett. 5 minute drive from the square. Leave a penny on Jesse's tombstone.

Gorgeous final resting place on the top of a hill with great views. The only thing we didn't like was the intermingled old and new graves making it more difficult to look at just older spaces. There is a ton of history here but unfortunately some markers are broken and/or so old we couldn't read them. Did find the plot... More

If you're into history and like touring old cemeteries, this is the place for you! There are quite a few famous historical people laid to rest here. In fact, there's a couple of rumors that have been circulating for years that Jessie James and John Wilkes Booth are buried in this cemetery under assumed names.

Worth a detour to see Jesse James grave. Apparently there are three around the country but this is the one his decedents believe to be the true grave.

Easy cemetery to find and even though Jessie James is buried there it's not commercialized. Locals told us to drive to the very back of the cemetery. You will see a street sign pointing to the grave and it's just a few steps from the dirt lane. Very easy access. I'm glad we went to see it.

Learn about the area history. You will find the grave of General Hiram Granbury, a Civil War General killed in action at the Battle of . Also see the grave of Jesse James and don't try and tell the local's that he wasn't the "real" Jesse James. A very historical little town, with a renovated town square and County Courthouse....

Walked through this cemetery with my husband and 10 YO daughter recently, and we loved it. There are graves that are over 100 years old. It's fascinating to see how some have been kept up remarkably well while others are falling apart. It's a beautiful site with lots of trees and unique markers as well. If you are a graveyard...

The Granbury Cemetery offers a bit of everything for those who enjoy authentic and faux history. Although the most famous "non-resident's" grave site - Jesse James (not actually buried and probably never resided in Granbury, Tx) - will attract most visitors the most authentic and interesting representations of local and state history can be found on the inscriptions of the...

We of course had to come here to see Jesse James grave but we really enjoyed walking around and seeing the history and people that were there. Very well kept and a nice finally resting spot.
