The Mount is an old stone-walled garden estate in the Montrose area of Houston, Texas. The estate was once owned by John H. Kirby, a railroad of formidable wealth and influence. Today, the Mount is an lush garden park with a wide array of species of plants and trees, pathways, and a reflecting pool. It is a perfect place for peaceful picnics and photography. With its stunning terraces, ponds, and stone-walled gardens, the Mount provides a tranquil environment to relax and escape from the noise and traffic of the city. The Mount is a perfect setting for couples and nature photographers who can capture the magnificent displays of greenery and water. The estate is only open during the week, but the gardens are always open, day or night.
