Hillcrest Cemetery 1877 - Temple, Texas

Hillcrest Cemetery is older than the City of Temple. The grounds have many marked burials that pre-date 1881, when the city began. These 68 acres were once a farmer's field, where citizens in the mid-1870s began a one-room school. The cemetery evolved nearby when a student, age 17, died in 1877. An estimated 16,000 are buried here. Epitaphs in many languages reflect the increasingly diverse nationalities who settled here - Germans, Czechs, Italians, Hispanics, French, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Koreans.
