Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum

Story:

Founded in 1841, Woodland Cemetery is one of the nation's oldest rural, garden cemeteries. The Wright Brothers, writer and humorist Erma Bombeck, inventor Charles Kettering, poet Paul Laurence Dunbar and NCR founder John H. Patterson are buried at Woodland. More than 3,000 trees and 165 specimens of native Midwestern woody plants grace the Arboretum's 200 verdant acres of rolling hills.
