This cultural resources survey conducted for Preservation Dallas did not encounter any cultural resources such as burial artifacts or unmarked burials. The majority of the area immediately adjacent to the current cemetery boundary has been extensively disturbed by modern construction activities associated with rapid urban sprawl of the Dallas Metroplex post 1950s. If any burials were present outside of the cemetery boundary, previous impacts from road construction, buried utility placements, and suburban development would have severely compromised the integrity of such resources to the south, east, and west of the cemetery.
The plot of land to the north of the cemetery holds the greatest potential for burials outside of the modern boundary. This area was less disturbed by modern development and formed part of the plot of land where the church was located. Any development in this area should be monitored for burials and potential structural remains of the church.
It is recommended that city and state landmark designation be pursued for McCree Cemetery. The cemetery would meet the following designation criteria for city designation.
- History, heritage, and culture
- Significant persons
- National and state recognition
- Historic education
