Directions to the Greenleaf Cemetery in Brownwood : Howard gravesite:
I'm getting to Brownwood Friday afternoon, I will probably not make the Friday night festivities but does anyone have directions to the Howard gravesite. I was thinking I would hit that Friday late afternoon.
From LaQuinta/Blockbuster/Walgreens/CVS Intersection (all roads heading N-S-E-W) Take Hwy 377 South 2.1 miles going through 3 redlights and crossing over RR overpass. Cemetery will be on the right with a "tricky" entrance-- Look for Green highway marker. Entrance
is between Water Express and Sterling Monument Co. on RIGHT. Our cemetery volunteer group is hosting a reception at the gravesite both Friday and Saturday 9:30-2:00. We will have photos, and handout material and can also direct you to Tevis Clyde Smith's gravesite at Greenleaf. We will also have maps to Novalyne's gravesite. If you can't make the reception, the Cemetery hours open are from 8:00-8:00. As you drive directly into the center of the cemetery, Howard's headstone is easy to see just to the right and will have a historical marker sign beside it. Look for a wooden stake with a colored plastic flag on it. Also, a covered "funeral canopy" should still be at the gravesite.
Directions to the cemetery are also available at the following hotels/motels: Holiday Inn Express, LaQuinta, Days Inn, Hampton Inn and
America's Best Value (formerly Best Western)
