Cemetery notes and/or description:
Texas Historical Commission Marker:

The High Hill Post Office, established about 1858, united three adjacent villages, Blum Hill, Wursten and Oldenburg, and gave this community cemetery its name. This six-acre tract was once the property of George Herder (1818-87), a German immigrant and a veteran of the Battle of San Jacinto. The oldest stones mark the graves of August Wolters, who died April 6, 1861, and Friedrich Eicholt, who died May 18, 1861. Two other prominent area citizens buried in the cemetery are Louis Schulenburg, born June 3, 1810, died Dec. 18, 1887; and J. Christian Baumgarten, born March 13, 1836, died Sept. 29, 1912. The cemetery contains about 241 graves, primarily those of German settlers in the area. Family members cared for the site until 1963, when the Old High Hill Cemetery Association, Inc., was organized.
