Located just on the edge of downtown sits the final resting place of multiple Texas bigwigs. You cannot drive thru this place- need to park outside and walk thru. A map is available at the entrance- no charge- to plot out your visit.

Was very impressed by the meticulous groundskeeping work at this location. I even complemented a worker who was maintains the area. Texas residents and families of the deceased have a beautiful cemetery for their loved ones.

Yes parking is available inside the cemetery but it gets crowded sometimes. Best to Park outside and walk in. Get to see more that way. Well worth the walk.
