Pitts Cemetery
Township of Wood
Wood County
Wisconsin

In Pittsville, at the southeast corner of Jackson Street and First Avenue.

Final resting place of Oliver Pitts & family other early settlers.

This cemetery is the final resting place of men, women and children who settled Pittsville and the surrounding area. Some tombstones have weathered, some broke; some graves were never marked. Some stones were moved, but time and nature cannot remove the life these people pioneered for us
