20th Century Glenwood walking tour: Feb. 23, 2019
Glenwood Cemetery is known for its splendid Victorian monuments, but there’s a more modern side to the cemetery as well. This docent-guided walking tour explores some of the newer sections of Glenwood and the lives of some of the well-known 20th century Houstonians buried there, including businessmen George and Herman Brown; cotton magnate and statesman Will Clayton; Edgar Odell Lovett, Rice University’s first president; Astrodome builder Judge Roy Hofheinz; and longtime television anchor Ron Stone. Hear their stories and discover the fascinating art and architecture of 20th century Glenwood on this two-hour, docent-guided walking tour.
