Greenwood Cemetery is privately owned non-denominational cemetery located in the Uptown neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. Founded in 1875 as the Trinity Cemetery, the first burial was a Mrs. Susan Bradford that March. At the time, the cemetery was out of town and surrounded by farmland. By 1896, the cemetery had fallen into disrepair with one local noting: "The fence is down in twenty places, cattle roam all over the graves and wagons use the main street as a common thoroughfare." This prompted the formation of the Greenwood Cemetery Association which took over the maintenance and operation of the cemetery and gave it its current name.[1]
