Lubbock's oldest cemetery whose most famous resident is rock 'n roll pioneer, Buddy Holly. Take the first road to the right after entering the cemetery and look for the sign pointing to his grave site.

Just like the crash site outside Clear Lake, it is a place to reflect and pay respect to Buddy's legacy. leave a memento, a coin or a guitar pick. But don't try to chip away a piece of the headstone.

My mom was laid to rest here in 2007 and it always looks so peaceful.

I only go when a loved one is burried. This is not my idea of a good time. Go to Buddy Holley center is you are interested in his life not much here.
