The Houston Pioneer Cemetery is a historic cemetery in Eau Gallie, Florida. It is located within Rossetter Park off Highland Avenue between Oak Street and Shady Lane near the James Wadsworth Rossetter House. The cemetery includes graves of original settlers from Eau Gallie such as John C. and Mary Virginia Houston. A memorial from 1947 located adjacent to the cemetery dates the first grave at 1865 [Eau Gallie Garden Club. "Houston Memorial Park" memorial dated 1947 located in Rossetter Park in front of the Houston Pioneer Cemetery, Eau Gallie, Florida.] , but no headstone contains that date.


Some of the graves include:
*Bonnie Houston: born September 9, 1899 & died February 19, 1900 - gravestone inscription "Another link is broken, in our household band. But a chain is forming in a better land."
*John C. Houston: born July 8, 1813 & died November 22, 1885
*Mary Virginia Houston: born February 19, 1823 & died February 13, 1894
