General Information

Houston National Cemetery, a US National Cemetery and registered Historic Cemetery, is a 419 acre property that contains more than 110,000 interments as of 2021.

Established in 1965 as a Veteran Cemetery, the cemetery became Houston National Cemetery in 1973 after the passage of the National Cemetery Act. It was the only government cemetery constructed in the United States during the 1960's and was the largest of its kind at the time - only dwarfed in size by Arlington National Cemetery after years of expansion.

Notable Monuments

Houston National Cemetery contains a large semi-circular monument (Hemicycle) which surrounds a chapel and a 75' high carillon bell tower, and includes a large courtyard for open air ceremonies.
