Woodlawn Cemetery


Although the distinguished women who are buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, New York, didn't make their mark there while living, visiting this 400-acre cemetery can be a stroll through the history and culture of the 19th and 20th centuries. Among those interred in the rolling hills are Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, Gertrude Ederle, Antoinette Perry, Nellie Bly, Madame C. J. Walker, and Celia Cruz.
