High Plains History Episode
Tue November 27, 2012
What began as an act of kindness to provide a final resting place for a pioneer child has become the Llano Cemetery in Amarillo, Texas. The 130 acres have been developed to include elements of historical architecture, impressive landscaping, and a sense of a beautiful public park for all who enter the gates.
Those who rest in the various gardens, tombs and mausoleums come from varied backgrounds -- from gypsy kings to astronauts, from heroic Texas lawmen to self-sacrificing chaplains who gave their lives so that others might live. A visit to Llano Cemetery will open your eyes and your hearts to the history of the Texas Panhandle.
