Oak Hill Cemetery (Texas Historical Marker)
Hartwell Fountain sold ten acres of land to the City of Lampasas in 1872,
to establish this cemetery. Originally known as City Cemetery, it was
renamed Oak Hill Cemetery in 1908. The Ladies Cemetery Association, a
group of concerned Lampasas women maintained the cemetery from 1891 to
1948, when the city assumed responsibility. Among those buried here are
local pioneers, prominent business people, veterans of wars including the
Texas Revolution and the Civil War, and their descendants. (1992)
