Very historic and beautiful. There are some very old headstones and unique family plots. Great place if you are into photography. This is still a working cemetery so bear that in mind if you visit.

This cemetery is very old. I have a friend buried here and 2 family members. It is a very quiet place. You can walk around the grounds and feel that you are not alone. It is a very peaceful place.

The gentleman in the office went above and beyond to help with some research I was doing on my g-g-g grandfather, G. T. Armstrong (former McKinney mayor). Thanks for the help!

I LOVE Pecan Grove. I've got a lot of family in the cemetery and I visit a lot to be sure all of their graves are clean and there are flowers in the vases. However, even if I didn't have family here, I'd probably visit. As soon as I turn in, I roll down the windows and enjoy the peace.... More

My daughter and I are both into history so we stopped here about a year ago. This is such a well maintained and peaceful old cemetary. If you are inot history it is a facinating place to visit.
