Although a very somber place and probably not everyone’s idea of a tourist spot, the Glenwood Cemetery is certainly worth a visit. A trip to this beautiful place is sure to be reminiscent of the typical European cemeteries.

Gorgeous statues adorn the graves and the beautiful citations engraved on the burial stones are also simply stunning. The art is simply breathtaking. There are gothic fountains and statues of angels that give it a very eerie feel. The Howard Hughes Family plot is perhaps the most interesting thing to see here. Several notable Houstonians including George Hermann after whom Hermann Park is named. Howard Hughes himself and the actress Gene Tierney Lee are buried in this lovely cemetery.

You can take a guided tour about the place to learn more about its construction and the people buried here.
