Historical Marker
    Collegeport Cemetery The town of Collegeport was founded in 1908, and this site was used as a cemetery for area residents. Early burials include those of Elizabeth Palmer and Harry Sundstrom. Several burials are marked by Roman numerals set into shell concrete. The King's Daughters organization maintained the cemetery from 1921 to 1958, when the Collegeport Cemetery Association was formed. In 1961, hurricane Carla destroyed most of the cemetery records. Members of the community have always tended the burial ground, from men in the early days digging the graves to those funding operation and maintenance projects today. Historic Texas Cemetery - 2002
