The McAdams Family Cemetery is located on the frontage road headed south of I-35 at Illinois. The cemetery dates back to 1892. Probably the most recognizable person buried there is Nathaniel O. McAdams. Nathaniel McAdams was the 3rd sheriff ever elected in Dallas County in 1862. He also served as the District 4 County Commissioner for 14 terms until 1896. McAdams’’ name is engraved in the Old Red Courthouse downtown. The McAdams family farm provided the land for Wynnewood.
OOCCL is organizing a clean up on February 28 from 9:00am - 1:00pm. Please come join us if you can!
TXDOT could not give a definitive answer as to the cemetery's future at a recent Southern Gateway meeting held at Hitt Auditorium on January 13, 2015. The Southern Gateway seeks to widen I-35 with the addition of managed toll lanes.
The cemetery is a designated Historic Texas Cemetery.
