Hall Cemetery, cleverly concealed just outside Howe, TX, is a beautiful Final Destination for hundreds of North Texans.


Located on land patented by Anderson White, April 22, 1850, by Peters Colony, an immigration project which had received a large land grant in this region from the Republic of Texas, burial plot was begon January 6, 1857 upon the death of White's daughter, Sarah White Haning, wife of Aaron Haning. One week later, on Jan 13, a second grave was added, that of haning's mother, Rachel Pierce Haning. In June 1857, White sold his land in the area, but reserved 2 acres, surrounding the burial site, deeded April 1859 to trustees for a public cemetery.

Named for Benjamin F. Hall, Pioneer Minister of the Disciples of Christ, Doctor, Dentist and Lawyer, who owned the White property from 1857 to 1872, and founded several churches in the area..
