I had to visit Buddy Holly's gravesite before leaving town. Hidden away off the road and without much fanfare...there it was. I'm glad I did.

Make sure to bring a guitar pick to place on the grave. Also when trying to find this place use 31st Street and Teak Ave on your phones gps to find it. My Garmin never could find it. My iphone brought me right to it once someone have me the correct intersection.

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....
