Cemetery notes and/or description:
by Congregation Emanu-El B'ne Jeshurun, 2419 East Kenwood Boulevard, Milwaukee, WI, (414-964-4100). The cemetery association originated in 1869, when Temple Emanu El was formed after its break from B'ne Jeshurun. In 1872, the "Hebrew Cemetery Association" formed with the purchase of ten acres in the town of Lake. In 1873, the name was changed to "Greenwood Cemetery Association". The first burials were the removal of bodies from Hopkins Road Cemetery. About 2700 are interred. Small, 10-acre Jewish cemetery founded in the 1860's.
