About Garfield Park Cemetery
In 1902, a group of men prominent in the Dutch community opened Garfield Park Cemetery. [It was] designed and platted in the park cemetery style, though with graves less ostentations than many park cemeteries of the day. From the outset, the cemetery was marketed to ‘all classes of people,’ perhaps a softly critical reference to the upscale appearance of Oak Hill and Greenwood. . . . [Garfield Park Cemetery] takes its name from the land’s previous owners . . . who loved the deeply wooded land.
