Welcome to the

Roselawn 1891 Foundation

Founded in 1985, as a 501c3 nonprofit, under the auspices of the Roselawn Cemetery Board, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, our
mission is to protect and preserve the cemetery’s historic and cultural legacies.

Through education and community outreach we serve as stewards for all generations. Roselawn provides burial records dating from 1891, genealogy research, an opportunity to commemorate loved ones lives and eternal memories.
