Seminole Indian Scout Cemetery

Little out of the way, but you can continue on to DelRio on a good "non paved" road!

Seminole Indian Scout Cemetery

There is a Seminole Indian Scout cemetery, resting place to the scouts and their descendants. The Indian Scouts served at nearby Ft. Clark until 1914. Four won the Congressional Medal of Honor, and no scout was ever killed or injured in battle. It's a great old cemetery, and the names on the headstones are really poignant -- Mary Bowlegs is the one I remember best. There are signs leading to the cemetery off of Hwy 90.

Not too far away is the movie set where they filmed "The Alamo."
