Vanderpoole Cemetery


The small Texas community of Vanderpoole is situated in the valley created by the Sabinal River in Bandera County. It was originally settled in the 1850's and has survived even after being abandoned for a time during the 1860's because of Comanche raids. Vanderpoole is only a few miles from the Lost Maples State Natural Area in the Texas hill country.

We knew no sorrow

Till they bright

Our darling one
hath gone before,
To greet us on
The blissful shore.
