Found in the 1850s during Texas' early statehood, this burial ground served the Ebenezer community and southern Gonzales County. Ebenezer Church, built by Baptists and later serving a Methodist congregation, was located near the cemetery entrance and probably housed a school. The church closed in the early 1900s, but the cemetery remains as an important reminder of Ebenezer settlement. Maintained by descendants of pioneer families, the cemetery contains graves of government officials, military veterans, and pioneer settlers.
