Good Hope Cemetery

Good Hope Cemetery

Lee County, Texas
30 08.538' N 96 51.098' W Directions: Start at the intersection of CR-231 and CR-226. Go .4 miles east on CR-226. The cemetery is on the left (north) side of the street.

Text: German and Wendish settlers founded Good Hope Community in the 1880s and established a school by 1887. The earliest marked grave in the community cemetery, dated 1889, is for Dora Vick. George Kruse, also buried here, ran a rock quarry across the road that supplied fill stone for the construction of the Galveston seawall. A spur of the Houston & Texas Central carried the rock to the coastal city. Good Hope Cemetery contains 12 known graves; several tombstones bear German inscriptions.
