Located at the corner of the Central Texas Expressway (highway 190) & Western Street in Lampasas, Texas, in the Wal Mart parking lot.
This is a small cemetery. The Texas Historical Plaque tells about the origin of this cemetery. This cemetery was first used in 1854 while Texas was still only a Republic.The land was purchased from the original settlers in 1861 by a Mr. Cook, thus the name of the cemetery today.
The cemetery was forgotten about for many years and was in a very dense parcel of woods. It was re-discovered when construction was begun on a Wal Mart Store. This cemetery is in the parking lot of this store.
There are several unmarked graves in this cemetery. One is marked with a Texas Star and the Inscription Citizen of the Republic of Texas 1836-1846. Some graves are surrounded by rock walls. The cemetery is now maintained by the City of Lampasas.
