Description

City Cemetery #3 (Estimated Burials: 1,700) – Prior to 1867 the City set aside some land for burying “Colored People” west of the San Antonio National Cemetery, a military burial ground. That property was deeded to the U. S. Government when the military cemetery was expanded. City Cemetery #3 was established in 1889. Dates of the first Black interments are unknown but this cemetery was the first containing graves of Blacks, Whites and Hispanics. Over time more and more of City #3 was turned over to Black fraternal orders including Odd Fellows, Charity Temple and various lodges
