Since it was established by St. Paul’s in 1850, Forest Home’s history reflects the historical changes of Milwaukee and its surrounding communities. It is the final resting place to beer barons, industrialists, mayors, governors, senators, and families who have made significant contributions to, and helped to build, Milwaukee. But it is a cemetery open to anyone, and there’s plenty to celebrate above ground, too!
Before the bitter cold of winter comes, check out their Public Tours and Events, including a World War II Heroes Tour, Tree Appreciation Day, Intro to Birding in the Cemetery, Spirits of the Silent City: “Unfinished Business”, and the Día de los Muertos Festival and 5K Run Walk! Advanced registration is required, as space is limited.
