About usWoodland was established in 1841 for the expressed purpose of creating a resplendent cemetery landscaped to support a rapidly growing city. Since its very beginning, Woodland has been the conservator of Dayton history and the culture of its people. With over 110,000 souls entrusted to its care, it is the final resting place of many of Dayton’s most distinguished residents including the Wright brothers, Paul Laurence Dunbar, James Cox, Erma Bombeck, and Charles Kettering.
