Cemetery notes and/or description:
Also known as Old Hico Cemetery as it was abandoned when the town relocated to it's new location to accommodate the railroad....

"The original town of Hico was founded in 1856 on Honey Creek, a most picturesque and historical stream that flows into the Bosque River. Hico was named by J.R. Alford, after his old home town of Hico, Kentucky. In 1880 the Texas Central Railroad was built through Hamilton County. Hico was approximately two and one half miles from the railroad. Officials proposed that the town be moved to the railroad.

On November 11, 1880, an auction was held to sell the first lots for the new location of Hico. Soon the only remains of Old Hico were a corn mill and cotton gin. The mill and gin were torn down in 1930, and the rocks from these two buildings were used to build the present school gym and the marker of Old Hico."
