The City of Austin was founded in 1839 and shortly thereafter, the State of Texas deeded what is now known as Oakwood Cemetery to the City. Today, there are five cemeteries currently operated by the City, and include: Austin Memorial Park Cemetery, Evergreen Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery, Oakwood Annex Cemetery and Plummers Cemetery. Burial spaces are only available for purchase in Austin Memorial Park and Evergreen cemeteries.
Due to the hard freeze coming this week we will be turning off the water at Austin Memorial Park, Evergreen, Oakwood, and Annex until Monday, January 9, 2017.
HOLIDAY DECORATIONS WILL BE REMOVED FEBRUARY 1, 2017.
