Event description

Description

Historic Glenwood Cemetery is known for its beauty, but the stories of the people buried there are just as compelling — especially Glenwood's women, whose legacies range from the suffrage movement to the silver screen. This tour tells the stories of some of those fascinating women and their impacts locally and nationally. Among the featured subjects are Charlotte Allen, the wife of Houston co-founder Augustus Allen; suffragists Annette Finnigan and Florence Sterling; publisher and stateswoman Oveta Culp Hobby, who led the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps during World War II; and movie star Gene Tierney.

About the tour:

Preservation Houston, in partnership with Glenwood Cemetery, offers public docent-guided walking tours of the cemetery four times a year. These tours are available by reservation only.



Tour times and dates are subject to change in the event a burial is scheduled on the date of the tour or in case of inclement weather. Time changes will be posted on the PH website, and those holding reservations will be notified as far in advance as possible.

Please note that the tours are walking tours and that all vehicles will be left near the cemetery entrance. The route covers approximately one mile at a leisurely pace. There are no public restrooms available on the property.



Reservations for these tours are limited and will be guaranteed on a first come, first served basis. There are no refunds for Glenwood tours.
