Magnolia Cemetery was started by some of Beaumont’s most prestigious founding fathers. The cemetery provides insight into our community’s beginnings, the city’s cultural background and burial customs of the time. Magnolia cemetery is a non-profit Perpetual Care Cemetery serving Southeast Texas for over 120 years. It continues to be operated by a board of community leaders that have the goal of preservation and service for the community.
Heritage Happy Hour is an on-going partnership between the BHS and Giglio Distributing Co. Each event highlights an historical exhibit, time period, or landmark, as well as craft beer or brewery that is being showcased by Giglio Distributing Co. The event is expected to take place every other month and the location will be subject to change as we highlight historical landmarks throughout our city. The Beaumont Heritage Society and Giglio Distributing Co. believe that by promoting and sharing our local history and its historical significance that we can also share and promote the efforts to preserve Beaumont’s historical landscape.
