it may seem strange to some that a cemetery can be beautiful and very interesting, it is also an arboretum and it is on the National Register of Historic Places. i have given many tours to our friends. being so old it has many styles of old grave stones. many mausoleums and obelisks, even a very large stone chair.
the civil war area is a favorite of mine. many prominent families have been laid to rest here. lots of streets in toledo have been names after the "residents" of woodlawn. take a ride there and enjoy.

Don't let the other poster fool you. I was once a teenager. And I used to sneak in there at night all the time. Never vandalized. Never tried to raise the dead loo. We just went there to get away for a few hours andsmoke ccigarettes. That review was hilarious though. It is a beautiful place.

This is not your typical historical cemetery where you walk around tombstones and memorials and chapels (which are greatly made by the way). This is also an arboretum where you can enjoy all sort of trees while you walk around ponds or crossing bridges over the Ottawa River. Look for free guided tours where docents explain about the history of people buried here as well as the tress around the place.

This cemetery is dangerous. it is widely known for being haunted, and many young kids hang around especially at night. They vandalize the cemetery and conduct witchcraft and seances in the surrounding park. It is a very dangerous place to go which is unfortunate due to the fact that it is supposed to be a place to let those who have passed on rest in peace. It is anything but peaceful...
