Forest Home Cemetery and Arboretum

Forest Home Cemetery and Arboretum

Forest Home Cemetery & Arboretum is Milwaukee’s oldest operating cemetery. It is a National Registry of Historic Places site and a urban green space with a Level II accredited arboretum.

A non-profit since its inception in 1850, Forest Home has always welcomed people from all faiths and cultural backgrounds. Located near downtown, its 200 acres provide visitors with a peaceful oasis of gardens, historic mausolea, architecture and ancient trees. Forest Home is a touchstone to Milwaukee’s proud past and the final resting place for the city’s most illustrious and notable citizens. Every year, our grounds host public events including a Memorial Day event, 5K run, Doors Open Milwaukee, historical tours and our signature Dia de los Muertos celebration with food trucks, performances, children’s arts and altars to the dead.
