About This Business
Glenwood cemetery was designed with inspiration from the traditional romantic rural cemetery parks popular in the 19th century. With amazing landscape and beautiful trees standing overhead, visitors enjoy a special location to remember loved ones. Located only one mile west of downtown Houston, the collection of monuments and statuary are bold reminders of the rich history that the great city is known for and also those important people who shaped it. These individuals include the last President of the Republic of Texas, four Governors, and more than twenty Mayors of the city. Others include religious and professional leaders, founders of major companies, and others that have made many significant contributions to the great city of Houston.
