With its winding paths, gentle hills, serene lakes and towering trees, historic Woodlawn Cemetery & Arboretum is a perfect place for quiet remembrance and reflection. And for more than 130 years, Toledoans have come here to honor the loved ones who have passed.

Founded in 1876, Woodlawn Cemetery is a classic example of the type of rural cemetery that urban planners began to favor in the mid-1800s. Its original 160 acres were situated well outside the city limits. The beauty of nature and the work of accomplished artists and architects coalesced in its stunning park-like setting. Read more...

Woodlawn Cemetery will be postponing all programming for the foreseeable future per the current recommendations from the Ohio Health Department. We strive to be a place for people in even the worst of times, yet we feel it is our responsibility to take this action. We are pleased to say the grounds will continue to remain open and we encourage you to come visit. However, out of respect for other visitors, please avoid being here in large groups and practice appropriate social distancing.

The office will remain open for phone and email communication and our hours are unchanged. We are continuing to provide services to all the families who choose Woodlawn and our grounds staff will maintain the cemetery to the high standard that we have all come to appreciate. We will continue to provide updates in the coming weeks, appreciate your understanding and look forward to renewing our normal schedules.
