Welcome to the Bluffton Cemetery Website

Welcome to the Bluffton Cemetery of Llano County, Texas website. Where do we start -- the Bluffton Cemetery is a historic cemetery that dates back 150 years, to about 1864. This cemetery is actually the second "Bluffton Cemetery". The first, the "Old Bluffton Cemetery", was covered by the waters of Lake Buchanan in 1937; and this cemetery, the "New Bluffton Cemetery" was built in 1931 to replace the "Old Bluffton Cemetery". Of the 459 graves that were moved from the basin of Lake Buchanan, 422 were moved to the New Bluffton Cemetery.

2016-2017 -- A Great Start!

The 85th meeting of the Bluffton Cemetery Association was a big success and a lot was accomplished. The trustees were authorized to pursue the purchase of addition land for the cemetery, Nancy Chism, one of our trustees, was reelected for a three year term, and an amendment to the bylaws was passed which prohibits glass and breakable containers from being used at graves in the cemetery. Also, the trustees were authorized to add additional chain fencing around the perimeter of the cemetery in phases. The weather was very nice and the cemetery is looking the best it has in years. Also, all of our former rangers have been sponsored, and now we have the possibility of two more. Thank you for your continued financial support. We are off to a great start in our just beginning 2016-2017 fiscal year. Again, thank you, the trustees.
