Just north of Eva Street aka 105 West (from Conroe) at Pond Street.

The Methodist Churchyard came into use for burials starting in 1836. When Pastor G. W. Rabb was dying in 1851, he requested burial beneath the altar of the frame church then being built to replace the original log cabin. His grave and a monument commemorating pioneer circuit riders now mark the original Methodist Church site. A stone in this cemetery commemorates a soldier of the American Revolution who died here. Other churchyard burials included veterans of the War of 1812, the Texas War for Independence, Mexican War, and Civil War, as well as many other pioneers, state and county officials, merchants, ministers, and physicians. In some of the unmarked graves are travelers who died here among strangers. Although a new cemetery opened in 1868, this one was also used until no space remained.
