Located at 1814 Lucas Street in a beautiful residential area overlooking the Mississippi River valley, Greenwood Cemetery consists of 80 acres of well-maintained lawns, stately trees, and historic memorials. Greenwood is a nonprofit and nonsectarian cemetery with a tradition of caring since 1843.
The Greenwood Cemetery Chapel was entered into the National Register of Historic Places with the State Historical Society of Iowa in 2002. Our professional, courteous staff is available to assist families with location and genealogy questions as well as pre-planning. Group historic tours are also available in the fall.
The Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department's annual Greenwood Cemetery Walk (or Ride) Through History event is held in September and features colorful, historic stories about some of Greenwood Cemetery’s most interesting residents. The event is open to the general public, and everyone is encouraged to attend the one-hour event and learn about the history of Muscatine.
