Dallas, Texas

One of Dallas' oldest Jewish cemeteries. Many gravestones here bear Hebrew inscriptions. It is also a "Who's Who" of the merchant and social world of early Dalls. Alex Sanger, founder of the "Community Chest" which later became the United Way is buried here. Also, well known to the fashion world, Carrie Marcus Nieman rests here. She, along with brother Herbert Marcus and her husband Al Nieman founded the Nieman Marcus department store in 1907.

One of four historic cemeteries in Uptown Dallas. These four cemeteries house a lot of the city's early settlers, and all are well maintained. Uptown Dallas is a trendy urban development area, so my guess is that the cemeteries will continue to be kept in good repair, as they add a certain niche to the location. There is a visitor bureau office in the area and they offer printed maps guiding you through a walking tour off all four cemeteries.
