DOCENT-GUIDED WALKING TOURS

Docent-guided walking tours of Glenwood are available to individuals by reservation. Private tours for groups may also be arranged. Click here to make a reservation for one of the upcoming tour dates through the Preservation Houston website.

All times and dates are subject to change in the event a burial is scheduled on the date of the tour or in case of inclement weather. Time changes will be posted on this website and those holding reservations will be notified as far in advance as possible.

Please note the tours are walking tours and all vehicles will be left at the cemetery entrance. The route covers approximately 1.5 miles at a very leisurely pace. There are no public restrooms available on the property. Note that space on the tours is limited and reservations will be guaranteed on a first come, first served basis.

Glenwood is able to offer these tours through a collaboration with Preservation Houston.
