Glenwood Art & Architecture walking tour: November 23, 2019

This two-hour walking tour traces the changing tastes and the varied social and personal motivations reflected in some of Glenwood's outstanding monuments, which range from elaborate Victorian obelisks and angels to crisp, modern compositions. Along the way, docents will explain the symbolism and stories behind the monuments and will discuss the lives of Houstonians both famous and forgotten who commissioned them. About the tour: Preservation Houston, in partnership with Glenwood Cemetery, offers public docent-guided walking tours of the cemetery four times a year. These tours are available by reservation only.

 Tour times and dates are subject to change in the event a burial is scheduled on the date of the tour or in case of inclement weather. Time changes will be posted on the PH website, and those holding reservations will be notified as far in advance as possible. Please note that Glenwood tours are walking tours and that all vehicles will be left near the cemetery entrance. The tour route covers approximately one mile and may involve walking on uneven ground and up and down steps. Glenwood tours are not entirely wheel-friendly. There are no public restrooms available on the property.

 Reservations for these tours are limited and will be guaranteed on a first come, first served basis. There are no refunds for Glenwood tours.
