Criswell Cemetery

Criswell Cemetery

Falls County, Texas
31 26.258' N 96 45.218' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of CR-147 and CR-159. Go .3 miles south on CR-159. The cemetery is on the right (west) side of the road.

Historical Marker: Bearing the name of the community it once served, this site is part of ten acres deeded by Marcus Thomas Durham in 1886 for a school, church and cemetery. By that time it was already an established burial ground; the two oldest marked graves, both dating to 1873, are those of C. M. Criswell and Durham's father, Thomas Durham (1811-1873). In 1950 an association was formed that purchased the nearby school and church building and organized an annual homecoming to create a fund for maintaining the structure and the cemetery. The Criswell Cemetery remains a record of the history of this area of Falls County.
