  • Beautiful historical cemetery with great views of the city on the far end of it. The place is easy to access and the roads are wide enough to go around the place by car if you prefer that over walking around. Lots of places to stop and to snap beautiful photographs. Highly recommended.
  • Great place to have a picnic with your family surrounding your departed. Serene environment coupled with ample shade from some of the oldest trees you’ll see that have survived countless storms. This cemetery is home to a lot of families that help build the city so please give all the respect towards your surroundings.
  • Bernice Is the historian; she helped me and my sisters piece together family history back multiple generations. She is very genuine and friendly, and is truly interested in understanding family connections and their histories.
  • This is a really interesting place! If you know anything about Texas history you will certainly find someone here to talk about. Glenwood is full of prominent Texans. Walk around and read the names and you will hear street names, county names, public places and many which were in the history books. Monuments speak of the importance of the departed. Some are very modest and some interesting, some modern and some will break your heart.
  • This place is just beautiful and peaceful. I highly recommend checking it out.
