Glenwood Cemetery

IMG_2022 by lc_db

Glenwood Cemetery was formed in 1871 as the first professionally planned cemetery in Houston. Located within view of the downtown skyline, it is the final resting place of several locally historic dignitaries, as well as, citizens of the Republic of Texas as shown HERE.

This weeping angel, the Hill Family Monument, is one of the more recognizable memorials on the grounds, which is a very peaceful and serene place to escape the hectic pace of one’s day.
