Tennyson, Texas

Burials from late 19th century to present
Established by pioneers of Mule Creek community, a small frontier settlement founded in 19th century. Said to be named either for (1) an early horse and mule ranch, or (2) a stagecoach mule that died at a creek which runs nearby. The Abilene-Fort Concho stage once served area. For years the principal building was a combination school-church. Inscriptions of tombstones chronicle history of the community. In spring, grounds are covered with bluebonnets.
