I saw this cemetery when I was a boy in the 1950's on a field trip from Riverside Elem. School. We were taken there by our third grade teacher on a city bus and she had no aids or assistants and was able to control 29 students and get us back to school without loosing anyone. Wish there were photographs.

This cemetery is the final resting place of the Honored Dead of Tarrant County. I sincerely wish there were hours posted when the cemetery would be attended and the gates open so I could take pictures of the burial place of General Tarrant.

It is so sad that we cannot get in to visit . This is Ft. Worth history, it should be open for us to experience
