According to the Austin American-Statesman, George W. Bush has chosen to be buried at the Texas State Cemetery in Austin.

Until this week, it was widely expected that, when the time came, he would be buried at his Presidential library on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

From the Dallas Morning News:

The decision strays from the recent tradition of commanders in chief being buried at their presidential libraries. Every president who has died since John F. Kennedy has been buried at his library, except for Lyndon B. Johnson, who is buried at his Texas ranch.

Freddy Ford, the Bush spokesperson had this to say.

“I can confirm that president and Mrs. Bush have indeed selected the Texas State Cemetery in Austin as their final resting place,” he said. “They never want to leave the home state they love. President Bush would just like to point out one thing: This doesn’t mean he already has one foot in the grave.”

According to Ford, the former President and First Lady will be buried together. No final decision as to where in the Texas State cemetery the plots will be.

We hope that it’s a long time before the former first couple makes use of their newly purchased burial plots.
