Welcome to Magnolia Cemetery of Houston

Magnolia Cemetery of Houston is an historic, perpetual care cemetery located on a 6 acre tract, 1 mile west of downtown Houston, Texas, at 816 Montrose Boulevard. A place of historic significance in Houston, it has been in existence since 1884. The founding members created this resting place in the heart of the city, and it remains a comfort to the families who still come here to visit their ancestors.

Donate to the Cemetery

The cemetery has suffered many blows in the last few years. Our once verdant cemetery has succumbed to Hurrican Ike, the drought of 2012, and most recently the massive fire on the adjacent property. We are in the process of consulting with the Historical Commission to determine the best way to restore this green space to it's former beauty. Because we are a perpetual care cemetery, our sole income is a trust which pays only our operating expenses. Donations to support our restoration efforts are appreciated, and can be made in the following ways:
