Introduction & History:

MAGNOLIA CEMETERY
THE MAGNOLIA CEMETERY COMPANY WAS GRANTED A CHARTER BY THE
STATE OF TEXAS ON AUGUST 3, 1887. THE FOLLOWING MONTH THE COMPANY’S FIVE
TRUSTEES PURCHASED THIRTEEN ACRES OF LAND ON WHICH TO LOCATE THE
GRAVEYARD, AND BURIALS WERE SOON TAKING PLACE IN THE CEMETERY.
LAND ACQUISITIONS AND EXPANSIONS OVER THE YEARS HAVE SURROUNDED
THE HEBREW REST CEMETERY JUST NORTH OF THE ORIGINAL THIRTEEN ACRES, AS
WELL AS TWO OTHER BURIAL GROUNDS--THE I.O.O.F. (ODD FELLOWS) CEMETERY
AND A PLOT DEEDED IN 1876 TO “WHITE CITIZENS OF BEAUMONT” (LATER KNOWN AS
THE PUBLIC GROUNDS). ADJACENT TO MAGNOLIA CEMETERY, BUT SEPARATELY
HELD, ARE THE KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS AND ST. MICHAEL’S ORTHODOX CEMETERIES.
MANY EARLY SETTLERS AND RESIDENTS OF BEAUMONT ARE INTERRED HERE,
INCLUDING TWO VETERANS OF THE TEXAS REVOLUTION. THE OLDEST GRAVE
MARKERS PRE-DATE THE OFFICIAL FOUNDING OF MAGNOLIA CEMETERY AND ARE
REPRESENTATIVE OF BURIALS WHICH WERE MOVED HERE FROM PRIVATE FAMILY
CEMETERIES. A VARIETY OF GRAVE MARKERS CAN BE SEEN HERE, FROM SIMPLE
STONES TO ELABORATELY SCULPTED ANGELS AND FAMILY MAUSOLEUMS.
