The Broadway Cemetery in Galveston is actually seven cemeteries that grew together over time, with graves almost three deep in some sections and dating back to 1839. Buried here are those who succumbed to yellow fever, the victims of the Great Storm of 1900, and difference-makers who helped shape the Texas map: George Ball, Lent Munson Hitchcock, Abraham P. Lufkin, George Sealy, Sidney Sherman and Richard Short Willis. The Galveston Historical Foundation, which keeps track of spooky places and haunted lore in the region, leads the curious through the Broadway Cemetery Tours.

9 and 10:15 a.m. Saturday. Broadway Cemetery, 4201 Broadway Avenue J, Galveston. For information, call 409-765-7834 or visit $15.
