Was in Austin for several days of meetings. Was able to sneak away to walk thru this cemetery. Was particularly looking for Navy SEAL Chris Kyle's grave. Very moving. As the son of a veteran, I'm grateful for the way this place is cared for.

We did not do the Audio Tour but will do this next time!!! Lovely grounds just east of Austin (around the corner from Hillside Pharmacy - yum) Did some online research prior to going - but the visitor map/guide is also very thorough. AGAIN - DO THE AUDIO TOUR.

This quiet well kept cemetery, with a view of downtown, is a place for history buffs. It's full of legendary Texans who have made the state what it is today. Pays respect to several American wars and the 9/11 attack. I recently attended a memorial ride to the cemetery for Chris Kyle put together by Veterans. Very powerful. It's not... More

I have lived in Austin for 35 years and had not visited here until this week - my loss for not discovering this sooner! Such a beautiful and peaceful location - great walking trails for navigating the grounds. Staff in the visitor's center is extremely helpful. TIP: staff suggested coming in April when the grounds and flowers are starting to... More

There are several interesting cemeteries in Austin and this is one of them. Don't miss the Ney Sarcophagus of Robert Sidney Johnstone.

I am one of those people that enjoy going through historic cemeteries. On our trip to Austin this Christmas, we made a trip here. I could've stayed a couple of hours, looking at the monuments and headstones. So much history and many interesting finds. Next time, I would stop in the office and pick up a map. I don't think...

We visited this beautiful historic cemetery in Austin today and was amazed how interesting it was. Many Legendary Texans are berried here. A history buff will really enjoy this site. Very easy to get to and close to downtown. Not real big so easy to walk around. A very moving place.

Beautiful green space that just happens to be filled with history. Could walk (or sit) for hours next to the beautiful plantings.
