These beautiful grounds are the tranquil resting-place for over 23,000 people, including Governor James Hogg and his daughter Ima. The architect who designed the Governor's mansion, Abner Cook, rests here along with the first person who was ever buried in this cemetery in 1839; when Texas was still called the Republic of Texas. This is Austin's oldest cemetery and despite its location (near the Interstate), it is surprisingly peaceful. With beautiful trees and old iron adornments this is a unique place to take a walk.
