Elmendorf City Cemetery
Elmendorf, San Antonio, Bexar Co. Cemeteries of TX
Submitted by Wanda WestfallLocated 17 miles southeast of San Antonio, Texas
This cemetery is very old and some years back citizens of Elmendorf and others took a lot of the headstones and made porch steps and used them for other things. The law made the ones caught put them back but there were many lost forever. A lot of the headstones are deteriorated and others in overgrown enclosures. The city council of Elmendorf recently put into effect cemetery hours of 7a.m. 9pm seven days a week.
