Search Old Calvary Cemetery:

This small, old cemetery was used for burials until it became filled to capacity around 1920. During the 1920's, a newer and larger Catholic cemetery (also named Calvary) was created, in which burials now occur. The newer Calvary Cemetery is located next to Woodland Cemetery. This cemetery is located on Washington Avenue, and is called "Old" to distunguish it from the newer cemetery.

Several decades ago, this cemetery had fallen into disrepair. Reclamation of this cemetery was done through the labor of the state of Wisconsin's S.P.R.I.T.E. program.

Unfortunately, many headstones are missing or damaged, leaving many graves unmarked.
