I visited Oak Grove this week. I love to drive through the gates and go back in time to see the graves of ancestors. I take my grandsons and show them where historical people have been laid to rest. History is almost lost on young people so it's a good way to connect with history.

An old historic cemetery with many important Texans buried here including many members of my family. It's a well maintained cemetery and not too large where you can't walk over and explore the many interesting and historical graves.

Several signers of the Tx Declaration of Independence are buried here, first secretary of war, Texas first millionaire, and many more. Make sure you either read ahead of time the history or pick up some info at the visitors center so you know what you are looking at. Very interesting place with so many of our early leaders and settlers... More

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.

This is a large cemetery located in the historic district. Great place to visit for Texas history buffs. There are some historic graves; most are well-marked.

What a great old cemetery. There are some amazing trees on the property and lots of historical graves. The important ones are well marked and the less important ones are fun to discover on your own. If you like sleuthing in cemeteries this is one of the best I have ever enjoyed.

There are grave sites for many important people in Texas history. My husband was pleased to visit the grave of Kelsey Harris Douglass, a charter member of the Grand Masonic Lodge of Texas. Get a free map of the cemetery from the Visitors Information Center downtown.

I was told this is one of the oldest, if not the oldest cemeteries in Texas. It's antique and modern markers and old growth oak and elm trees make it a peaceful place to imagine generations that came before us.

Some may not think of a cemetery as a great place to visit but this one is truly full of history and beauty. Some of Texas first citizens rest here and the place is greatly kept up. It offers one a very beautiful and peaceful getaway. Take your time, read the historic tombstones and marvel at the beautiful statues on... More
