Veteran Burials

On April 16, 2005 Magnolia Cemetery received it's designation as an Historic Texas Cemetery. A ceremony and reception was held on the cemetery grounds to commemorate the occassion. In addition to the civil war veterans below, Magnolia is also the resting place for veterans from the Spanish American War, World War I and World War II. It is our desire, over time to highlight more of the brave heros of these other wars, as well as the lives of those who contributed to the beginnings of our city on the bayou.
