Oakwood Cemetery


Avenue I and 9th Street



 Oakwood Cemetery is best known as the burial site for Gen. Sam Houston, but it has many more interesting stories. It is also a very beautiful area filled with trees old trees and artistic monuments and markers.  ..and a lesser-known entity called Black Jesus. Apparently the statue used to be bronze, but the harsh elements weathered it away to its current unforgiving, black as night appearance. Every grave in close proximity to it is facing West, while the rest of the graves in the cemetery face East. The story goes that every night, Black Jesus turns his hands down as opposed to their usual upward-facing position. Are you brave enough to find out the truth?
