Welcome to Pioneers Rest Cemetery

Pioneers Rest Cemetery is the oldest historic burial ground in Fort Worth and the only remaining resource from the original fort commanded by Major Ripley Arnold. Established in 1850, with the graves of two of Arnold’s young children and eleven soldiers from the Fort, the grounds are the final resting place of Fort Worth’s earliest pioneers including General Tarrant for whom our county is named. The non-profit 501(c)13 cemetery is located at
620 Samuels Avenue, Fort Worth, Texas.

Pioneers Rest Cemetery receives no financial support from any government entity. Today, you can find Pioneers Rest Cemetery tucked away just north of downtown amidst residential housing.
