Cemetery Maintenance and Restoration

The Anna Area Historical Preservation Society is focused on preservation of important artifacts around and about the Anna, Texas area. None of these artifacts are more important than the cemeteries and family plots scattered around north Collin County, Texas.

We are working on a portfolio of pictures, locations, and short histories of the following Anna area cemeteries:

  1. Forbis Cemetery
  2. Cottage Hill Cemetery
  3. Wear Cemetery
  4. Hunt Cemetery
  5. Baker Cemetery
  6. Alexander Cemetery
  7. Chambersville Cemetery
  8. Elm Grove Cemetery
  9. Brinlee Cemetery
  10. Stony Point Church
  11. Coleman Cemetery
  12. Stiff Chapel Cemetery
  13. Altoga Cemetery
  14. Johnson Cemetery
  15. Climax Cemetery
  16. West Shady Grove Cemetery
  17. Crossroads Cemetery

It will include driving instructions and GPS coordinates.

LAIR CEMETERY IN ANNA, TEXAS

Community cemeteries, family plots, and church plots are a rich source of history and heritage. Over time, lack of maintenance, environment, and even vandalism can wipe out these valuable, historical records. Since the beginning, the AAHPS has been instrumental in the repair and restoration of numerous Anna area burial locations.
