City Cemetery

This cemetery was established in 1838 when it was decided that the original block set aside for a cemetery would not be appropriate. Folk lore says that 28 graves were moved to this new City Cemetery, and that a large grave was dug where all other recovered remains were placed. Some of the original graves have been identified, but there are several people who are supposedly buried here that cannot be located. The Gonzales City Cemetery is the final resting place for many brave settlers who helped shape the history of Gonzales, Texas, and our nation.The iron fence and arch were installed by the Ladies' Cemetery Association in 1910.
