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.

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.

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.

A well kept cemetery for those of us who love history. Check out General Granbury's grave site and someone who claimed to be Jesse James. Great conversation. RIP to those interred here.
