I love old cemeteries and this one is just lovely with the large trees and beautiful old church next door. It has plenty of shade so you can browse through a bit more comfortably.

Found Thomas J Rusk's grave here. Very interesting to walk among one of the founders of Texas. Certainly worth a look.

Pretty cool history to walk around and learn about the area. Teenagers were excited to just get out and walk. They also enjoy history too.
