Historic Hollywood Cemetery is a privately owned perpetual care cemetery founded in 1895. It is Houston's most affordable cemetery and is conveniently located inside the loop just of I-45 between the Historic Heights District and the Near Northside. Our bilingual staff is available Monday through Saturday to assist you in finding a permanent place of remembrance ... a place to honor a special life and a place for your family, friends and future generations to visit and pay tribute.
Buried here are Texas Republic descendants, celebrities, local officials, ministers, attorneys, soldiers, homemakers, mainstream Harris County citizens and even the inventor of the ice cream cone, Andrew George Simmons ... we have been a landmark for six generations of families and would be honored to be one for your family and many generations to come.
Contrary to popular belief, the cemetery got its name from a family admired by the original founders of the property, not the famous movie location in California. Thanks to new ownership and management, Hollywood Cemetery became Historic Hollywood Cemetery in January 2009. The cemetery later received “historical” status by the Texas Historical Commission.
Consider Historic Hollywood Cemetery when determining where you or your loved one’s final resting place will be. We have property totaling over 55 acres that is available for interment rights. Niches and crypts in our mausoleum are also available. Our Family Services professionals will be happy to assist you with anything from selecting cemetery property to ordering a monument or marker. We are here to help every step of the way. Many times the graveside portion of the Memorial Service is relatively short and very minimalistic. But there are many ways that you and your loved ones can create a more memorable way to celebrate the life of the deceased. Adding additional elements to the service is also a powerful way to create an honorable and special service that is devoted entirely to the memory of the deceased. With in-house financing Historic Hollywood Cemetery will make any service, lot or marker purchase affordable.
