Santa Anna Foundation Receives Approval For Texas Historic Cemetery Marker

An application for a Texas Historic Cemetery marker has been approved by the Texas Historic Commission on behalf of the Santa Anna Cemetery by the Santa Anna Foundation in cooperation with the Santa Anna Cemetery Association. The Santa Anna Foundation is an organization formed to promote historic and economic development in Santa Anna, as well as scholastic achievment by awarding scholarships to graduating SAHS Seniors in partnership with the Santa Anna Ex Students Association.

Those that wish to donate to the Santa Anna Foundation or to the Santa Anna Cemetery Historical Marker project can send their donation to PO Box 3 Santa Anna TX 76878.
