Steeped in history, Glenwood Cemetery (1871) is a special landmark in the City of Houston. Renowned Texans from eras gone by and modern times rest here, their names etched in ornate stone, whispering tales of the city's rich heritage. One of the more recognizable names to Texans is that of Anson Jones - the last president of the Texas Republic. Scattered throughout the grounds lie captivating Victorian sculptures, accessible to all who wander in. Lush greenery, rivaling arboretums, graces the gently rolling landscape, creating a unique haven for quiet contemplation and serenity within the bustling city.
Also housed within the cemetery grounds is Washington Cemetery, which was originally the German Society Cemetery founded in 1887.
