Johnson Road Cemetery Montgomery County Texas

aka Votaw Cemetery


Thank you Andrew West for these updated directions:

Traveling on 59 North, exit Community Drive. Turn right onto Community Drive. Turn left on Loop 494. Turn right on Johnson Road. After crossing the railroad tracks you will immediately pass Lodge road, continue on Johnson. On the right hand side, make your first right on a grass/dirt road that is not marked. This will take you to what was once the front gate of the cemetery.

My parents actually have the back on the graveyard on their property, and someone told them long ago that it was the oldest African American graveyard around...although I am not sure its true. People come out and mow it about once every two years...so I was just curious. The roadway seems like a part of someone's yard though. Just grass. Its kind of a shame to see it go to the sticks.
