"Amazing historical gravesite. Dating back to the s this spot is very interesting to visit. As you can assume most of the tombstones and grave markers have been damaged or eroded by weather. Some still stand though and are beautiful to see. Parking is a bit of a wild card but if there's a will there is a way. Enjoyed this cemetery stop."
"Being a direct descendant of those Swor people buried at Garvin Cemetery, and on behalf of my family, we greatly appreciate the attention and upkeep Garvin Cemetery seems to be getting(as of Feb ). We have no idea who is maintaining the cemetery now. However, in the past, due to the lack of family still in the area, we have done our best to donate to various groups that have maintained the cemetery over the years. There have been many years that the cemetery has gone without maintenance, and this saddens and worries us. The threat of development has also cast doubt as to the cemeteries' future, and in which an uncertain future still is exists. In these times of fiscal crisis, looking to the City to take the initiative to protect these old resting places is probably not an option. Until such time, the burden falls upon a caring community to continue respecting the resting place of some of the people who pioneered the great city of Dallas."
"There are two historic cemeteries in close proximity to each other. Both from the 's. The Garvin Cemetery is located at W. NW Hwy. and in the back accessable only from the Bachman Creek Greenbelt Park is W. NW Hwy which is a Black Cemetery the early pioneer John Cochran gave to Elm Thicket's black community in . They are both zoned comercial but have been shielded from development so far. To learn more Google: Dallas Garvin Cemetery Landmark Nomination Tract B"
"This is a small historic Cemetery. You will have to be creative to find a place to park so you can walk to the tombstones."
