HISTORY: from TEXAS HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Pioneer settlers in this vicinity met together for worship services in the Gum Springs School House until 1892, when Stephen Taylor deeded land at this site for church and cemetery purposes. This historic cemetery began in the church yard of the First Methodist-View Church in the early 1890's.

The earliest documented grave in the cemetery is that of Scottish native James Smith (1836 - 1892) who immigrated to Texas in 1884. Those interred here include pioneer settlers, a number of infants and small children; and veterans of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and Korea.

The Prairie View Church moved to Briggs in 1906 and became the Briggs Methodist Church, the congregation was later dissolved and the members attended worship in neighboring communities, the church building was moved to Lampasas in 1951 and converted to a parsonage. The Prairie View Cemetery serves as a physical reminder of the pioneer's heritage.
