Cemetery Tours   SOLD OUT

If one searches the authoritative Handbook of Texas to learn about the fate of early Bastropians, the final resting place frequently cited is Fairview Cemetery, the historic 36-acre graveyard along SH 95 located on a hill overlooking downtown.


On October 23rd, BCHS will present two detailed docent-led walking tours in the cemetery. The tours will last about 60 minutes each. Tour 1 is at 3:00 pm, and Tour 2 is at 4:30 pm. 


Registration for each of the tours is limited to 20 individuals; reservations may be made by contacting BCHS at 512-303-0057 or online at the link below. If you need special arrangements please let us know.


The project is being spearheaded by Board member Sandra Chipley and Museum Curator Robbie Sanders.

More than 3,500 gravesites may be found in the Fairview Cemetery.
