Attended a graveside service there last week. It's a peaceful place with a few trees (which aren't that common in west Texas). If you're going there to see the Buddy Holly gravesite, it's easy to find-just turn right the first chance you get. You'll see the visitor building; and the Buddy Holly headstone will be on your left about halfway... More

This is where Buddy Holly the rock and roll icon is buried. It also has the oldest burials for the city of Lubbock.

Lubbock's oldest cemetery whose most famous resident is rock 'n roll pioneer, Buddy Holly. Take the first road to the right after entering the cemetery and look for the sign pointing to his grave site.

Just like the crash site outside Clear Lake, it is a place to reflect and pay respect to Buddy's legacy. leave a memento, a coin or a guitar pick. But don't try to chip away a piece of the headstone.

I only go when a loved one is burried. This is not my idea of a good time. Go to Buddy Holley center is you are interested in his life not much here.

really like the Lubbock Cemetery! Buddy Holly's grave is must see. People have left remembrances at the site. old cemetery and old headstones. If you follow the cemetery road to the back of the property and exit southward the road snakes around to an area locals know as Hell's Gate. Consists of an old RR bridge with a haunted history....

My primary reason for visiting the Lubbock Cemetery was to see Buddy Holly's gravesite. The cemetery is easy to find, take Martin Luther King Blvd to 31st Street, follow 31st to the cemetery entrance. Enter the cemetery, and take the first right, follow it a few hundred yards, and you will see a large sign on the right, pointing to... More
