The Texas State Cemetery is the burial place of many prominent Texans. Only a few of them, however, such as “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, are nationally famous. It’s mostly former Texas governors, judges, and legislators I’d never heard of, and few of the headstones themselves are really noteworthy. As it is a mile outside of downtown, I’d skip it absent special interest. If you go stop at the visitors’ center for a map so you can find the prominent graves. It’s a small cemetery only about three blocks long and two blocks wide and you can visit it thoroughly in a half hour.
