Welcome to our online museum.
Pull up a chair and come on in to explore Southlake’s rich history.

At the 2017 Lonesome Dove Cemetery tour, children gathered together to read Malinda Hill’s headstone, hand-carved by one of her sons.

We invite everyone, young and old, to our seventh annual Ghosts of Southlake Past cemetery tour, 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13, at the 170-year-old Lonesome Dove Cemetery. See photos from past tours on Cemetery Tours, above. To buy tickets, click here.
