The College Station Memorial Cemetery is made up of a total of 56 acres, with 20 acres designated to the Aggie Field of Honor. The beautifully designed facility includes an Information Center, a Committal Shelter, an Aggie Field of Honor and a City of College Station Columbarium and standard burial plots in each location.

Another special feature is the Spirit Gate that honors the life and spirit of those Aggies who have passed on. As you look through the gate to Kyle Field there is a sense of connection between this final resting place and the place where these Aggies were educated and launched their lives. And one only needs to be an Aggie in Spirit to call this your final home. Former Students, friends, family and anyone who has a love of this university and its community are welcome.

The Aggie Field of Honor portion of the cemetery was a vision of former students over 30 years ago and has finally become a reality. Many Aggies return to College Station to retire because of their love of their alma mater and the wonderful traditions and memories they hold dear. A special place of rest for those who choose it here is now available.

The original College Station municipal cemetery is located at 2530 Texas Avenue South.  The Cemetery is open for visitation Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. - sundown, and Sunday from 6 a.m. to sundown.

The College Station Cemetery was created in 1948 from thirty-one acres bought near the Shiloh community, approximately two miles south of Texas A&M on Highway 6.  That tract surrounded an existing cemetery, which had been deeded to the Methodist Church in 1870 by W.G. and Josephine Rector.  The A&M Methodist Church, in 1948, turned over those four acres to College Station to be incorporated into the city cemetery.  In 1973, the cemetery was decreased in size when the City decided to designate eighteen of the acres for the creation of Bee Creek Park.
