1. Hallettsville Memorial Park Marker
Inscription.  Land originally property of Mrs. Mary Jane Hallet Ballard, who deeded it to trustees of the "Hallettsville Graveyard" in 1870. Area pioneers were buried here until 1898. The monument in center honors county's heroes in battles of the Alamo, Goliad, Gonzales, and San Jacinto.

After 1898 the cemetery fell into disuse and weeds overgrew it. In 1952 several civic groups persuaded the city to establish a public park here; a group of leading citizens supervised its development. The city and local garden club have maintained the park and grounds since 1952.
 
Erected 1970 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 2341.)
