|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Also known as Freedman Cemetery.
Located within fence of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Secured fence with airport police patrolling. Permission must be obtained to view site. Because of Homeland Security restrictions visitors are escorted to site.
Close proximity to creek so best to visit in winter due to poison oak and snakes. City conducts clean-up only if there is a visit scheduled. Several toppled headstones and deep grave sinks. There were 24 headstones (in a earlier survey there were 43). Random check of death certificates for those missing markers show they were interred at Waters.
