Your reservation will be confirmed with a letter and a tour information packet. To book reservations you will need to contact the Tour Reservationist at or call (512) 305-8524. Special programming can be provided upon request.

In an effort to preserve the beautiful landscaping buses are prohibited from entering the grounds. Parking is available for visitors at the Visitor Center on Navasota Drive between 7th and 11th Streets. Handicap accessible parking is available at the same location. Please check in at the office when you arrive. Restroom facilities are limited. We suggest that visitors wear comfortable shoes due to the terrain of the grounds.

Cemetery Rules for Visitors

Due to the newly restored headstones and monuments, rubbings are prohibited. Food and drinks are not allowed on the cemetery grounds at any time. Pets are not allowed on the cemetery grounds at any time. Seeing-eye dogs, however, may accompany their owners.


Although we have little advance notice of funerals, groups will be notified through the contact number if a funeral has been planned for the time of their visit. Tours will be canceled and the grounds will be closed if a funeral is scheduled. We hope visitors will understand the priority of the funeral in this situation.
