“Hard to find but really a nice place. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Make sure to bring a guitar pick to place on the grave. Also when trying to find this place use 31st Street and Teak Ave on your phones gps to find it. My Garmin never could find it. My iphone brought me right to it once someone have me the correct intersection.

“peaceful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Attended a graveside service there last week. It's a peaceful place with a few trees (which aren't that common in west Texas). If you're going there to see the Buddy Holly gravesite, it's easy to find-just turn right the first chance you get. You'll see the visitor building; and the Buddy Holly headstone will be on your left about halfway between you and that building.

“Burial Site For Buddy Holly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

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.

“Respect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

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.
