Map & Details>>

The list of "residents" at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery is impressive. Civic and government leaders like Jesse Jones, Oscar Holcombe, Hugh Roy Cullen, "Red" Adair and Lloyd Bentsen are all buried here. Some not so illustrious characters also call Forest Park Lawndale their home, including Karla Faye Tucker (the last woman to be put to death in Texas). More impressive still are the grounds. Buildings with Tiffany stained-glass windows, spectacular statues and ornate headstones fill the cemetery's 225 acres. Fifty-plus-year-old trees shade the graves and a small lake while a beautiful, wide bend of Braes Bayou gracefully makes its way along the edge of the property.
