CHC Cemetery Projects

This map project was produced by Preservation Scholar Jason Rivas as part of his summer 2019 internship.

Each year, County Historical Commissions (CHCs) submit an annual report of their activities to the Texas Historical Commission. Cemeteries represent an important part of Texas history. The map below highlights the work selected CHCs took on in 2018 to preserve, document, or bring awareness to cemeteries across Texas. Click on the location dots to learn more about these stories, which are excerpted directly from each CHC's 2018 annual report.

Use the Texas Historic Sites Atlas to see how many cemeteries are in your county, where they are located, and which ones are designated a Historic Texas Cemetery.
