History: Land for this cemetery was given by T.B. and Hattie M. Clisbee in 1891, although a number of burials had already taken place by that time. The earliest known burial, that of Lillian Morrow, occurred in 1888. According to local legend, she was a child interred here by her westward-traveling family. A cemetery association, which was formed about 1901, was chartered in 1921. Llano Cemetery has served as a regional burial ground for Panhandle residents. A Mausoleum, The Llano Pancheon, was built in 1929 with widespread community support.
