  This site on the south bank of the South San Gabriel River, a portion of the land donated by George W. Glasscock in 1848 for the county seat of Williamson County, was used as a burial plot from 1840 to 1902.  Many pioneer citizens lie buried here – Many names unknown and graves unmarked.

 

  Restoration of “The Old Georgetown Cemetery” was begun in 1968 by the Georgetown Historical Survey Committee with the co-operation of the interested people who “Did Not Forget”.
