This was a stop on the AO Tour. We would have missed this beautiful cemetery on our own. Interesting history too.

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.

First trip and I would love to go back. The place was well manicured and maintained. Visited a grave site of a family member of a friend, but really enjoyed exploring all the names and sections of this cemetery.

A hidden gem of Austin is the state cemetery. Many of the influential people throughout Texas history are buried there. If you are looking for a quiet place to job or walk through, I suggest making the trip to the Texas State Cemetery

Shortest highway in Texas runs through this cemetery and is measured in feet, not miles. Numerous heroes are buried here and this is a MUST SEE!

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.
