Hillside Cemetery is owned and maintained by the City of Cuero.
Hillside Cemetery dates back to 1875, when the Cuero Land and Immigration Co. conveyed 12 acres of land to the new community of Cuero for use as a burial ground. By 1880, local women formed a cemetery association to maintain burial plots. They raised funds and collected dues to employ a groundskeeper to make cemetery improvements. The site grew to include additional acreage and the once segregated African-American cemetery, Evergreen. The Ladies' Cemetery Association turned over its duties to the City in 1972, but an endowment established in 1919 continues to generate funds for cemetery projects.
Records here were acquired from the City of Cuero on January 26, 2016. Dates of death range from 1806 to 2015.
