Colorado Chapel Cemetery,

Utley Community, Bastrop County, Texas

Submitted by Tammy Owens

Cemeteries of Texas Coordinator: Dolores I. Bishop

 

Location: Take Hwy 71, west from the town of Bastrop. Turn right on FM 969 8 miles; Turn left and go behind CS&T Store. There is a sign for the cemetery on 969. The cemetery consists of four sections: White, Latin, Old Black and New Black. No chapel was found near the cemetery.

White Section: Road follows right side of the cemetery and splits. Take left side of split and this section is located on the right side of the road before the end. Several graves are in heavy brush.

Latin Section: Take dirt road to the right, around cemetery, go left at split; go to the end. Only the recent graves are in a cleared area. Several of the older graves are located in brush and hard to read.

Black Section: This is the first section of the cemetery, with the older part on the other side of the wooden posts to the far left. The newer is well maintained and active.
