This interesting and well maintained old cemetery is a great place to visit when in Brownsville. It offers an opportunity to learn more about the various families who settled here. A history lesson in itself.

Cemeteries older the better. If you walk respectfully down the rows you can learn a lot. Size of families and the ages they passed. Before modern medicine many children and enfants died as did women in childbirth. Sobering facts in these times. Life was not easy for these people

I love the slow drive through reading names and dates on tombstones and also viewing the resaca activity of white pelicans, whistling ducks, other waterfowl and turtles. A calming experience

If you're into cemeteries this is a nice place to visit. Lots of local history with plaques giving historic information. Lots of unique birds in the area. It's a big cemetery but easily walkable. We enjoyed walking through and we're glad we visited.
