Glenwood Cemetery is known for its splendid Victorian monuments, but there’s a more modern side to the cemetery as well.

Hear their stories and discover the fascinating art and architecture of 20th century Glenwood on this all-new tour.

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.

Tickets are $10 for Preservation Houston members and students, $15 general admission. Purchase your tickets here.
