The city is committed to honoring the history of the Old Imperial Farm Cemetery and the surrounding prison operation:
- Sugar Land maintains the cemetery.
- The City made significant contributions to the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Sugar Land, which was built inside what was once the Main Unit, known as Two Camp, where the prison’s black inmates were held. The museum has included an exhibit documenting the experiences and contributions of African-Americans.
- The City worked with the Fort Bend Historical Commission to submit an application to Texas Historical Commission (THC) for a permanent educational historical marker at the cemetery. The marker was installed with a ceremonial celebration.
- The Imperial Farm Cemetery was declared a Historic Texas Cemetery in 2007 in an application that was made in collaboration with the Fort Bend Historical Commission and approved by the THC. The City has protected and maintained the prison cemetery property since taking ownership.
