Texas State Cemetery
While Texans love football and love to party, we also love the heroes of our modern mythos. What might sound gruesome to others (a cemetery) is Texas’s immense pride shining in homage to all the states heroes. The Cemetery is the final resting place of the many legends who have made the state what it is today, including politicians, judges, generals, Rangers, and more. Notables include first resident Gen. Edward Burleson, “Father of Texas” Stephen F. Austin, Alamo commander William B. Travis, first female governor Miriam Amanda Wallace Ferguson, and even a couple of Revolutionary War veterans. Make a list of your own favorite Texans and go say hi (or a final goodbye) to them.
