Der Stadt Friedhof
Der Friedhof Cemetery Records 1846-1996
HISTORY:

The City Cemetery Association was formed as a result of a plot of land being set aside in 1846.  The founding fathers of Fredericksburg called this Der Stadt Friedhof, later to be know as the City Cemetery.  This property is located at the end of East Austin, East Schubert and East Travis Streets.  The east boundary is Town/Barons Creek.

The Cemetery Association was delegated responsibility for the management and maintenance of the cemetery.  The Association consisted of members of all denominations worshipping at the community church known as the Vereins Kirche.  In 1850 a Roman Catholic Church was built, and they started their own cemetery.  This resulted in the City Cemetery being left to the existing Protestant Congregations.  Zion Lutheran and the United Methodist Church.  (United Methodist Church is no longer a member of the Cemetery Association.  Ed.)
