Beginning in 1839 with the donation of four-square blocks of land, the grouping of cemeteries on the central boulevard of Galveston has grown to include seven separate cemeteries. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, it is the resting place of famous and infamous citizens from Galveston’s colorful past, including veterans from every war since the War of 1812, heroes, scoundrels, murderers, pioneers of the Rebublic of Texas and more. Come hear some of the fascinating stories and secrets that the cemetery district holds. Kathleen Maca, a cemetery historian and genealogist for over 50 years, is a member of the Texas Chapter of Gravestone Studies and the author of four books about Galveston history, with a fifth releasing this fall.
