  • Obviously so many great historical figures rest here. A stand out for me is Anson Jones - the last President of the Republic of Texas. I posted some photos from my last visit.
  • Words can not espress this majestic landmark cemetery. It goes on and on, at every turn is more breath taking. It is surely a place you must visit, it's exquisite.
  • The mgr and Secretary were very helpful. Its free just to walk around and soak up the history. The beautiful location, flowers, old trees, delightful animals, make for a very momentous day. Take a walk on the wild side.
  • 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.
  • One of the most beautiful spots in Houston.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
