The District of Houston operates two municipal cemeteries: the Houston Municipal Cemetery and Mountainview Cemetery.

Houston Municipal Cemetery

The Houston Municipal Cemetery was established in 1926 to provide residents with a place to inter the remains of their loved ones. This cemetery allows for more traditional, ornate styled headstones and graves, and is maintained by municipal staff.

Mountainview Cemetery

Mountainview Cemetery was established in 2009, due to the Houston Municipal Cemetery having reached its capacity. This cemetery is located at the top of Mountainview Hill. The map for this cemetery was restructured in 2020 to ensure proper spacing and provide a more accurate account of cemetery plots. Owners of plots have been notified of this change and can familiarize themselves with the new map here.
