Greenwood Cemetery and Mausoleum Doors Open Owen Sound

Greenwood Cemetery and Mausoleum

Greenwood Cemetery, bordered by stately maples and cedar hedges, is the final resting place of ship captains, politicians and prominent business people. It is the only cemetery in Canada in which three Victoria Cross recipients are buried (including Billy Bishop). The Indiana-limestone-clad mausoleum, built in 1927, features marble interiors and impressive stained-glass windows. Walking tour brochure/guided tours available.
