Woodlawn Cemetery, Green Bay, Wisconsin

« Back to Projects Dashboard

Woodlawn Cemetery, located high above the east bank of the Fox River, had it's name suggested by one of the founders and it's first president, Henry S. Baird. Incorporated a century ago, March 28, 1856, the cemetery's organization was not legalized until 1867, when platting began and the first burials took place. Woodlawn was founded by a group of Green Bay's most prominent citizens, including Henry Baird, Eugene Eastman, Charles D. Robinson, Dr. Daniel W. King, Timothy O. Howe, Nathan Goodell, Frank Desnoyers and Burley Follett. All were important in the city's early history and most of them rest today in the shade of Woodlawn's great trees.
