TMS Curator, Jamie Simmons said in a press release,

“Rose Hill Cemetery is one of the two oldest cemeteries in the city and is the final resting place of some of the region's earliest pioneer settlers. Their personal stories tell the story of Texarkana’s founding and it’s sometimes tumultuous early years.”
