The Women of Glenwood walking tour (sold out)

  • Glenwood Cemetery 2525 Washington Avenue Houston, TX, 77007 United States (map)

Please note that this tour is fully booked. We cannot accept walk-ups on the day of the 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.

Please note: The tour route involves walking on uneven ground and up and down steps. This tour is not wheel-friendly.
