Old Bayview Cemetery
This Historic Cultural Landmark is bounded by West Broadway St., Waco St., Ramirez St., and the I-37. Constructed by the U.S. Army during the encampment of General Zachary Taylor before the start of the Mexican-American War in 1846, this cemetery holds the remains of military veterans and the earliest settlers of Corpus Christi. Here you will find examples of Victorian grave adornment: marble and granite tombstones and obelisks, iron fences, and concrete curbing.
