More About the Historic Texas Cemetery (HTC) Designation

The HTC designation is an official recognition of family and community graveyards and was developed in 1998 to help protect historic cemeteries by recording cemetery boundaries in county deed records to alert present and future owners of land adjacent to the cemetery of its existence. The designation imposes no restrictions on private owners’ use of the land adjacent to the cemetery or the daily operations of the cemetery. A cemetery is eligible for designation if it is at least 50 years old and is deemed worthy of recognition for its historical associations. The very nature of a cemetery being a landmark of a family’s or community’s presence is considered to validate the criteria of historical associations. Any individual, organization, or agency may submit a request for designation.

List of Historic Texas Cemeteries in Bosque County

The Official Historic Texas Cemetery designation can be obtained through an application process with the Texas Historical Commission. Any individual, organization or agency may submit an application. To receive the designation, the applicant must show proof that the cemetery is at least 50 years old and provide precise information on its location. A processing fee of $25 is required. If a cemetery already has a Historical Marker, certain information requirements in the application can be waived. Once processed, the cemetery is recorded in the county deed records as a historic site and is eligible to display the Historic Texas Cemetery medallion. The medallion can be displayed by itself, as an addition to an already existing Historical Marker, or with a new interpretive plaque with text developed from the history. The cost of the medallion and plaques are additional but are not required for a cemetery to be designated as an Official Historic Texas Cemetery. The designation does not restrict in any way the public use or private owner's use of the land adjacent to the cemetery.
