Cleanup at black cemetery in Texas
Cleanup is continuing at the Hendrick Arnold-Bertha Tryon Cemetery in Bandera, Texas. Work began around 2004 after officials determined the primary site was delinquent on taxes. Adjacent parcels were turned over to the county/cemetery organization, so that cleanup could begin. To volunteer for the project, call Bandera County Historical Commission member Carl Holt at 830-796-9799.

Where do we go when we die? This blog explores the places where cemeteries and land use intersect, and examines what urban planners and thinkers, communities and others are doing (and not doing) about cemeteries.
