Pioneer Plaza, Dallas: 17 reviews and 28 photos


This little cemetery dates back to 1852 and was the resting place of prominent early pioneers. Civil War Veterans are also buried here. Four early Dallas mayors are also buried here.

The graveyard was laid out on a hill which now overlooks Pioneer Plaza and as a good view of the downtown. This site was chosen less for the view but more for the fact that the Trinity River was known to flood at that time.
