Harris Cemetery

0.3mile north of Hwy 190 E. on County Road 132

This burial ground was apparently already in use in 1874 when A. J. and Ellen Crawford deeded it to Trustees D. A. Harris, A. J. Wells, James Wayland, F. Brookerson, and W. L. Adams as part of a five acre site to be used as a school and place of worship. The earliest dated grave is that of N. M. Baker (1819-1877). The 1868 stone of James L. Crawford, A. J. Crawford's father, was relocated here from nearby Crawford -Whitehurst cemetery after a flood but his remains are lost. A physical reminder of early San Saba County history, Harris cemetery is maintained by an association and continues to serve the community.
