Women of Glenwood Cemetery Walking Tour

Jim Parsons

Glenwood Cemetery, established in 1871 on rolling, wooded land near Buffalo Bayou, is one of the most beautiful outdoor spaces in Houston. It is also the resting place of scores of people who built Houston into the city we know today. This two-hour, docent-guided walking tour tells the story of some of Glenwood's notable women, whose legacies range from the suffrage movement to the silver screen. 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.

This class will be held at Glenwood Cemetery. Details will be emailed to registered participants prior to the class
