    Historic Cemeteries

    Oakwood Historic Cemetery

    Tarrant County is blessed with an abundance of historic cemeteries -- from tiny single-family pioneer graveyards to large manicured lawns dotted with the opulent tombs of cattle barons, oil men and business tycoons. All are cultural treasures and valuable reminders of the courageous people who forged a great civilization from the Texas wilderness. The commission maintains cemetery maps and a complete list of cemeteries in the county. It advises historic preservation groups and local government entities on state laws that protect historic cemeteries. And it promotes the protection and maintenance of neglected burial sites in the county.
