Routh Pioneer Cemetery Tour

56 56 people viewed this event.

Old cemeteries can be seen as eerie, depressing locations or as an intriguing window into the lives of those who walked the Earth before us. The Routh Cemetery is older than Richardson, with the first burial taking place around 1850. It is the final resting place of many of the area’s earliest settlers, including the Routh and Campbell families. Many descendants of those buried in the cemetery have been very active in the cemetery’s upkeep and preservation as the Routh Cemetery Association. Join us as we visit the final resting places and hear the stories of our area’s early pioneers.

This tour is part of the cities 150th anniversary celebration programs. Free tour geared for adults. Parking is available off Routh Creek Pkwy and behind the Reserve at Spring Creek Apartments.
