Stockholm Cemetery was surveyed as part of the Ranch Cemetery Survey of 1987 of the Hidalgo County Historical Commission. A Texas Historical Commission marker is located about 1/4 mile from the cemetery, inscription as follows:
Located on the Hidalgo-Willacy County Line, Stockholm was a Swedish community promoted by the Wallin, Johnson and Matson Land Co. of Minnesota. The Swedes, who settled here between 1912 and 1914, were attracted by the area's abundance of inexpensive, fertile farmland. They formed a farm club to share information and problems, and raised cotton, grain and corn. Some were dairy farmers. Stockholm, also known as Turner Tract, had churches, a school, grocery store and cotton gin. Near this site is the Stockholm Cemetery, one of the few physical reminders of the ghost town. (1985)
The cemetery is fenced in front with an iron fence and brick corner stones. There were a lot of young trees planted. Upon entering the main gate, the cemetery is divided into north and south portions. We have included the portion, row and grave number in this transcription.
