About this Location

Cleveland’s Woodland Cemetery located at 6901 Woodland Avenue in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood differs from other cemeteries. Its sixty level acres, viewed in an aerial photo or from the ground, provide a primer on American cemetery design, from the “rural cemetery” intricacies of the 1850’s through a more rambling style of the late 19th century to the rectangular 20th-century grid. Its mausoleums are in classical, Victorian, Egyptian, and Richardson rustic designs. These varied structures, along with angels, obelisks, and military memorials have caused Woodland to be favorably recognized in Silent Cities: The Evolution of the American Cemetery (1989) as possessing a “profusion of well-designed monuments.” In addition to being a Cleveland Landmark, since 1986 Woodland Cemetery has had the rare distinction of being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
