  • Lots of history. Many historical people buried here. Ancient oak trees that you won't find many places anymore. Lots of interesting tomb stones and so peaceful to be so close to Houston. It is worth your time. If you like history, nature, and architecture you won't be disappointed. Wear walking shoes and don't be in a hurry. Enjoy.
  • I havent been in an Historic cemetery since I came here in Houston in 1985. The place was so peaceful, beautiful monuments , trees, historical tombstones ... I know other people might think its strange to roam around on cemeteries but its a peaceful place to go... Aileen Houston, Texas
  • It may not sound like a place you want to visit during your holidays but then you'll be wrong! This is a must see. Beautiful place, very well kept, lots of art and the views of Houston skyline are impressive. The best part...no traffic and no annoying crowds.
  • Took my son's cub scout troop here to learn about historical figures. It was a great experience for the scouts and parents. Learned a lot of neat history about the city and the residents and families that formed it. Pretty tranquil place and has pretty easy walking paths.
  • Beautiful cemetery that I have visited on several occasions both alone for peace and also with family. This cemetery has so much Houston history at every turn that with each returning visit I learned something new. During my last visit I took a guided docent walking tour which was beyond amazing and I suggest everyone give that a try to learn not only about Howard Hughes resting place but also little know facts about some lesser known people buried here.
