Austin 1839
The City of Austin was founded in 1839 and shortly thereafter, the State of Texas deeded what is now known as Oakwood Cemetery to the City. Today, City of Austin Cemetery Operations, a division of the Parks and Recreation Department, operates five municipal cemeteries and maintains two family cemeteries. These cemeteries are located across the city of Austin and consist of 200+ acres of cemetery grounds, more than 80,000 burials, and five historic buildings. Cemetery Operations is located at Austin Memorial Park and the staff manages the grounds, administrative operations, burials, and historic resources.
