Located at 3304 East 12th Street, Evergreen Cemetery was established in 1926 to serve Austin’s African American community. Highland Park Cemetery, now a part of Evergreen, was established in 1891 and used for about 160 pauper burials of all races until 1893. Evergreen Cemetery has more than 12,000 interments in its 30 acres and receives more than 100 new burials annually of both African American and Latino people.
