Clover Hill Cemetery is located west of Lott Falls, Texas USA.
Driving south from Waco, on Highway 77, turn right onto State Highway
(north) Waco Avenue (first street to the right). Drive approximately
half a mile and enter through the arched entryway.
Named for waterfalls on the Brazos River, Falls County was created
in 1850. By 1896, the growing town of Lott boasted shops, hotels,
a newspaper, a band, churches and a volunteer fire department
but no public cemetery. Emily Porter and Matte Dickson led citizens
in finding a site and holding fund raisers to make it possible
to establish the first cemetery for the town of Lott Falls.
The cemetery was named for the 'buffalo clover' originally
blanketing the chosen site. Clover Hill Cemetery is also known
as Lott Cemetery. Clover Hill Cemetery was named a Historic Texas
Cemetery in 2002.
This is a complete transcription, compiled by my uncle, Lu
Ouida Vinson Phillips, in 2010 and I have submitted it for
publication with his permission. I also have a copy of all of
the photos he took to assist his read of the cemetery.
