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.
