Cemetery Tour: Murder, Movie Stars & More

Into true crime, and spooky tours? Take a short drive out to Galveston for a cemetery tour through the Trinity Episcopal Cemetery.  The cemetery is full of Galveston history and is the resting place of famous movie stars, tales of murder, and is one of the oldest cemeteries in the area.  The cemetery tours are led by Kathleen Maca, a Galveston historian who has studied the area’s cemeteries for over 45 years, making this tour not only entertaining but educational, too!
The cemetery tours are walking tours and will take place rain or shine, so be sure to grab an umbrella if the forecast calls for rain. Attendance is limited so grab your tickets now to assure you have a spot!
