Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: \u201cThe story of Houston can be told through histories of those buried at Glenwood Cemetery. From the \u2018mother of Houston,\u2019 as Charlotte Marie Allen is known, to Judge Roy Hofheinz, the father of the Astrodome, Glenwood houses the graves of hearty men and women who founded and shaped this great city along Buffalo Bayou. Houston\u2019s Silent Garden is a superb history of this cemetery, one that takes the reader beyond the names of those buried there. The book introduces us to the bucolic setting that continues to be what its founders intended when they created it 137 years ago-a beautiful garden that my life-long friend Carrington Weems says seems to reach \u2018up to the heavens\u2019 on starry nights. As a native Houstonian, whose grandfather served as the cemetery\u2019s president for a quarter of a century, I am gratified that Suzanne Turner and Joanne Seale Wilson have written this wonderful book.\u201d-James A Baker, III, 61st U.S. Secretary of State.

Inhaltsangabe: Glenwood Cemetery has long offered a serene and pastoral final resting place for many of Houston's civic leaders and historic figures. In Houston's Silent Garden, Suzanne Turner and Joanne Seale Wilson reveal the story of this beautifully wooded and landscaped preserve's development—a story that is also very much entwined with the history of Houston.

In 1871, recovering from Reconstruction, a group of progressive citizens noticed that Houston needed a new cemetery at the edge of the central city. Embracing the picturesque aesthetic that had swept through the Eastern Seaboard, the founders of Glenwood selected land along Buffalo Bayou and developed Glenwood. Since then, the cemetery's monuments have memorialized the lives of many of the city's most interesting residents (Allen, Baker, Brown, Clayton, Cooley, Cullinan, Farish, Hermann, Hobby, House, Hughes, Jones, Law, Rice, Staub, Sterling, Weiss, and Wortham, among many others). The monuments also showcase the artistry and craftsmanship of some of the region's finest sculptors and artisans.

Accompanied by the breathtaking photography of Paul Hester, this book chronicles the cemetery's origins from its inception in 1871 to the present day.

Through the story of Glenwood, readers will appreciate some of the natural features that shaped Houston's evolution and will also begin to understand the forces of urbanization that positioned Houston to become the vital community it is today.

Houston's Silent Garden
is a must-read for those interested in Houston civic and regional history, architecture, and urban planning.
