Near May in Brown County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Wolf Valley Cemetery
†††††A church building was constructed here in 1887 for use by Baptist, Methodist and Cumberland Presbyterian congregations as well as the local schools. Brush arbors were used for summer revivals. The building and grounds were the spiritual and educational hub of the community. The structure burned, but was rebuilt through donated funds and labor.
†††††Graves here include those of pioneer settlers, early community leaders, military veterans and two state legislators, H.P. Taylor and W.R. Chambers. The site contains over three hundred marked graves and two unmarked gravesites. An annual homecoming and Memorial Day service is conducted here each May. Maintenance of the historic burial ground is funded through various donations.
