History

In 1848 the Greenwood Cemetery Association was created in order to establish a community cemetery. Land to create the cemetery was purchased from local resident David Bigham, and planned by Adolph Strauch. Greenwood Cemetery was modeled after Mount Auburn Cemetery in Boston and Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati which had also been designed by Strauch.

Prominent Burials

Greenwood is the final resting place for Zapp lead singer and composer Roger Troutman and Family Feud host Ray Combs. The cemetery also holds deceased veterans of wars from the American Revolution to the present, and the only Civil War general from Butler County.
