Forest Home Cemetery Pond Bridge

Barrel Shot, Looking North

The green line is a path of a self-guided tour of the cemetery. You can see the tour on the Forest Home Cemetery website. Many of Milwaukee's movers and shakers are buried here; founders, industrialists, abolitionists, bankers, beer barons and the "Father of the U.S. Air Force," General William Mitchell.
