FROST-TOWN CEMETERY

By George E. Wolf Jr.
The Frost-Town cemetery was located under the Highway 59 bridge and Buffalo Bayou.
Frost-Town was started in 1837 by J. B. Frost.
The cemetery occupied the two blocks A and H, which bordered Buffalo Bayou.
(Frost-Town by Fannie Mae Mead)
The Frost-Town cemetery, which was used until the late 1880's, no longer exists; the Harris County tax assessor's Block Book shows that the site has disappeared into the bayou. (Texas Towns)

***********************************************************
I have been to the lost town of Frost-Town many times. There are no remains of the cemetery site to this day. In 1990 there were only 6 wood home's standing. When I went back in 1995 there was only 1 left till 1999. All the street signs are all gone.
The town that was Frost-Town is history forever.
