SOWERS CEMETERY WELCOMES YOU
Remembering those that made a difference in our community
The 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.
IRVING GIVES TO THE SOWERS CEMETERY
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.
Volunteer: Currently we are accepting volunteer general maintenance. We do a lot of our own regular grounds maintenance to cut costs and meet our tight budget. We can sure use your help! Volunteer groups welcome. Adopt a project, section or improvement that you would like to see happen at the cemetery.
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.
Make a Difference by Donating
