Search Wisconsin State Prison Cemetery:

Located outside Waupun in the Township of Chester, this cemetery was the final resting place for unclaimed inmates from the Wisconsin State Prison (now Waupun Correctional Institution) and patients from Central State Hospital. It was used from 1871 to 1975.

Originally, each grave had a marker bearing the grave number. In the 1980s, metal markers were installed bearing the name, number, institution, and date of death of each individual. Those markers were later replaced with one large sign bearing the names and dates of death of those buried here. The sign was later removed for repairs. The graves are currently unmarked.

The persons listed are from Wisconsin State Prison unless otherwise noted.
