In Memoriam
This Cemetery and This Avenue Named for
Colonel William Barrett Travis.
The brick for these walls are
from chimneys of home of
Colonel James Butler Bonham
The brick came originally from England
and the chimneys were built over
150 years ago.
Travis & Bonham both were from Saluda
County and were heroes of the Alamo.

"Thermopylae had its messenger of death;
the Alamo had none."

Brick donated by Mrs. Juell Gregory Grigsby.
Boy Scout Troup 51 assisted on this project.
