The City of Austin was founded in 1839 and shortly thereafter, the State of Texas deeded what is now known as Oakwood Cemetery to the City. Today, there are five cemeteries currently operated by the City, and include: Austin Memorial Park Cemetery, Evergreen Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery, Oakwood Annex Cemetery and Plummers Cemetery. Burial spaces are only available for purchase in Austin Memorial Park and Evergreen Cemeteries.
City of Austin Cemeteries scheduled clean-up dates as follows:
Week After February 1

Signage providing a minimum of 30 days’ notice will be placed at each cemetery prior to the scheduled clean-up date.
