Fodor's Review

In 1851, General Edward Burleson was the first person to be buried in the Texas State Cemetery. Today it’s the final resting place of some of the state's most important figures, including Stephen F. Austin, John Connally, Darrell Royal, Ann Richards, and Bob Bullock. Inside the cemetery, you'll find monuments dedicated to September 11, the Vietnam War, and the War of 1812; you'll also find special headstones for the mothers who have lost sons and daughters in wars and a Purple Heart monument.
