Historical Marker
     In 1856, land for the Old Center Cemetery was first donated by James Rowe, a community pioneer and a veteran of the Texas War for Independence. Rowe's grave, dated 1868, is one of the oldest in the cemetery. The earliest marked grave, that of Arminta C. Cash, dates from 1865. One of the few physical reminders of the Old Center community, the graveyard contains several unmarked graves and about 400 marked burial sites. Over the years, the descendants of the original land donor have given acreage to enlarge the boundaries of the cemetery. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836 - 1986
