  • One of the most beautiful cemetery in Houston/Texas. You can see lots of early settlers grave. I love the Century Tree in the garden. There is on going construction from Washington Ave. entrance, so you have to use Kane Street entrance on the East side of the cemetery.
  • The grounds are beautiful but do not go here for photography. The site is not clear on what is allowed and the office stated no one is allowed to take photographs on site (even though there are obviously photo's of this place on line). If security sees you they will put you out!
