This cemetery was established in 1892, on five acres of land purchased from H. M. Bandy for use as a cemetery. With several groups maintaining it through the years, it is now owned and very well maintained by the city of Lubbock.
The cemetery has held as many as four separate burial grounds, segregated by race, faith, and economic level, One such group, Los Socios Del Sementerio, or associates of the cemetery, provided for the burial of area migrant workers. It was integrated in the late 1960s and by now it has become the third largest cemetery in Texas having over 60,000 burials and has been designated as a Texas Historic Cemetery.
