Headstones and History

The “Headstones and History” Waxahachie City Cemetery Restoration Fundraiser ended on April 10, 2022.

A full donation report is available here.

HWI would like to thank everyone for their generosity and help with this important fundraiser.  HWI will host a celebration event once the repairs have been completed.  The community will be invited to attend.

Our City cemetery is more than just the final resting place for our early settlers and leaders.  It is one of our most valuable historic resources.  It reminds us of our past, our stories, our diversity and our culture.  It gives our city character and definition. Together, we will restore the Waxahachie City cemetery so that it will continue to be a place of peace and comfort for all generations.

If you would like to continue to support this important effort, you may give directly to the City of Waxahachie City Cemetery fund.  Information may be found at the “How to Help City Cemetery” news article dated March 2, 2022.

Thank you again for helping HWI with this important community fundraiser.
