Rockford Township, Winnebago County, Illinois

Greenwood Cemetery is located at the corner of Auburn & Main Streets, Rockford, Illinois. It was established in 1845. Since Greenwood is still an active cemetery, it has many older monuments and newer ones interspersed. Greenwood Cemetery is the oldest and largest cemetery in Rockford. Many of Rockford's earliest influential leaders are buried in Greenwood Cemetery. There are nearly 25,000 burials in Greenwood and room for an additional 25,000 on its 114 acres of land.
