Glendale Cemetery Next To Houston Ship Channel—The Dead Are Not Bothered By The Smell

As you can see from the picture above and from the picture below, the dead at Houston’s Glendale Cemetery are at eternal rest in close proximity of the Houston Ship Channel.

If you click the link above, you can read a brief history of the place and see pictures of the gravestones.

Glendale is Houston’s oldest cemetery. It was begun in 1826.

You might think it is noisy and smelly near the Houston Ship Channel.

Sure—But if you are dead those kinds of things don’t bother you so much.

  1. Have you ever noticed the Wunsche Cemetery between I-45 and the I-45 Feeder at Cypresswood Drive?

    When they redid that portion of 45 they had to accommodate the cemetery – it was a big deal at the time.
