Grapeland Texas Family Owned Business

Walker & Walker Funeral Home

GRAPELAND, TEXAS is known as “Queen City of the Sand Flats.” Also known as the Gateway to Houston County Lake. Grapeland sits on East Texas Highways 287 and 19 and FM 227 eight miles Elkhart, nineteen miles South of Palestine, and twelve miles North of Crockett.  The population is somewhere between the 2010 census count of 1,431and today’s estimate of 1,500.  It is well known for it’s locally produced “Grapeland Watermelons" and its annual Peanut Festival has put it on the map for citizens all over Texas. The festival held each October and provides a parade, food, carnival rides and music which draws crowds in excess of 10,000.

     Walker & Walker Funeral Home is a family owned business that sits prominently on highway 287 in Grapeland.  Suvella Walker was seven years old when his dad passed away. He watched the local undertakers as they took care of the family and the service they provided his father.  He was impressed by their professionalism and involvement with  the community. Since that time he always dreamed of owning and operating his own funeral business. Read more in January's 2017 Issue of Texas Informer.
