Cemetery notes and/or description:

Greenwood Cemetery is a non-denominational cemetery, located 2 miles from downtown LaPointe, on Middle Road. Burials date back to the 1890s and there are many family plots representing succeeding generations of both island residents and long-time summer residents. This peaceful cemetery is surrounded by beautiful forest land.
