The Ruiz-Herrera Cemetery was founded in 1840 and contains the graves of two heroes of the Alamo while the hacienda represents one of the earliest examples of private cattle ranching complexes in Texas. The project will provide erosion control, topography survey to mark the lost grave sites, road construction and foundation and roof repairs to preserve the historically significant sites.
