New City Cemetery in Galveston. The old name was Yellow Fever Yard and the land was donated for use for victims of the epidemic during the 19th century.

Interesting history behind this cemetery!! The flowers actually make the cemetery come alive with their color. Ironic that the flowers are yellow.....or was it planned?

I do love how the wildflowers grow. What a shame that the name was changed to "New City Cemetery" the name has no meaning and people will forget the old one which did. No pun intended, but why do some people always want to bury the past.
