The land was originally owned by Clarence Young Kouns and his wife Ann. It was purchased by representatives of Pat Cleburne Camp Number 88 United Confederate Veterans. At that time the land was designated as a park for the Confederate soldiers and their descendants, adjoining the city cemetery. Then both the park and cemetery became known as Confederate Memorial Park. As time passed the park was incorporated into the city cemetery.
So many Civil War Veterans, mostly Confederate and a few Union soldiers, settled and died here that by 1921 the decision to set out a memorial had been made. Funds were raised to rebuild the cemetery into the shape of a Confederate Flag.
The cemetery was renamed again in recent years: Cleburne Memorial Cemetery.
