De Zavala Cemetery At 3523 Independence Pkwy.


Recommended Posts

We were looking at the cemetery & I think I remember reading on one of the historical markers that the oldest graves had been moved there from "nearby". Maybe to move them inland from the encroaching water.

You are correct. The original De Zavala Cemetery was located across the ship channel in the Channelview community. Tragically, due to erosion and development of the ship channel, the graves in the cemetery were lost. However, the headstones somehow survived and were moved during the 20th century to their current location on the battleground.

The desecration of a cemetery will definitely support the claims that the San Jacinto monument grounds could be haunted. Spooky stuff.
