George W. Bush Presidential CenterPreston Hollow residents former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, want to be buried at the George W. Bush Presidential Center, the wildflower-filled sanctuary in University Park, according to The Dallas Morning News.

The decision, first reported by the Austin American-Statesman, is a change from their plans to be laid to rest at the Texas State Cemetery in Austin.

Bush spokesman Freddy Ford said the decision followed the death in April of former first lady Barbara Bush, George W. Bush’s mother. She was buried at the George Bush Presidential Library in College Station, where former President George H.W. Bush will also be interred.
