Sowers Cemetery is a memorial to the old
Sowers Community that later became a part of the city of Irving, Texas. We welcome you to join us in keeping this cemetery a historical monument tribute to our early pioneers.

Thanks to everyone who attended this year’s celebration to help in honoring the past, present and future of Irving. And a special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers.  The Sowers Cemetery Association sponsored the third annual event located at 3101 W. Pioneer Drive in Irving on the cemetery grounds.  We gathered around to visit at 10:00 a.m. General Meeting at 11 am. Barbecue lunch was then served and it was delicious.  Two tours of the cemetery and all the famous names that contributed to the growth of the communities that all became a part of Irving were given by Betsy Farris. If you could not be there in person this year, we  hope to see you at next years event!

150th Anniversary — Sowers Cemetery Association hosted the 150th Anniversary of the cemetery June 2018 with presentations from Mayor Rick Stopfer, former Mayors Dan Matkin and Bobby Joe Raper, State recognition from Representative Rodney Anderson and County Commissioner Dr. Elba Garcia’s office.

Capital Improvements — The Sowers Cemetery Association worked hard to get a new fence and driveway in 2017. The old fence was past due, dilapidated and poorly represented the Irving community and those interred at Sowers. Many volunteer hours and dollars were required beyond our normal budget to get this done. Donations are still needed to cover the fence cost shortfall of approximately $7000.

Community Support — Irving AMBUCS and Hope Irving Church install and dedicate a new flag pole in December 2014.
