HEARNE, Texas - Hearne has a land mark that you might have missed because it is actually underground.
A lone graveyard in the middle of Wheelock St. that belongs to Hollie Tatnell.
She was born a slave in Texas, and was buried in what was once a colored only cemetery.
When real estate developers requested family members to rebury their loved ones, everyone did, except Tatwell's kids.
They didn't budge and the developers had to build a median around it, meaning Tatwell lays in the middle of the street.
People in the area appreciate the history.
"Kinda scared at first I mean its a graveyard its somebody's grave but as you read the plaque its actually a family stance this was their area this is where they were born and raised," Johnny Lee Narvaiz said.
