Salem Historic Cemetery
Recognized as an Historic Texas Cemetery in 2010, Salem Lutheran Cemetery has been a reminder of the promise of the resurrection Christians share because of God’s grace through Jesus. We trust God’s Word assuring us we will be raised to new lives in a new heaven and a new earth “where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 6:20
Salem cemetery serves not only as a resting place for our loved ones but as a place of comfort in our grief. While we mourn a loss, we draw strength from our certain hope in Jesus’ resurrection. The joy of Heaven is now a reality for all who are alive with Jesus.
Salem’s founding families possessed a faith that settled a frontier, built a church, a school, and a community of believers all to glorify God and share the gospel message of Jesus in a new world. The lives commemorated in this place were the lives God used to carry out His work and to make Salem the dynamic center of ministry it is today. The legacies of our founding families are honored as Salem continues to proclaim the gospel to the greater Tomball area and around the world.
The cemetery has also been designated as a wildflower preserve, producing the beauty of a Texas springtime as only wildflowers do. To provide the annual display of bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, and the myriad of other wildflower varieties, mowing of the cemetery is limited to the months of May through September.
