Congratulations to Woodland Cemetery

Woodland Historic Cemetery and Arboretum Celebrates its 175 Anniversary.

Founded in 1841, Woodland Cemetery is one of the nation's five oldest rural garden cemeteries and a unique cultural, botanical and educational resource in the heart of Dayton, Ohio. As the resting place for the Wright Brothers, Katherine Wright Haskell, Bishop Wright, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and Charles F. Kettering, it is part of "The Aviation Trail", and the "National Aviation Heritage Area". It is also know for its Romanesque gateway, chapel and office, and with its 200 acres of rolling hills, century old trees, and Victorian monuments, is listed as an Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places.
