Woodland Cemetery & Arboretum
Available
Location:
Area: The Lookout Columbarium
Section: 6
Description: 
High over Dayton, premium location with spectacular views, single niches start at $5,000 and companion niches start at $9,000.

This beautiful area overlooks the Miami Valley and the cityscape, with a historic tower that can be seen for miles. The area provides the perfect form of memorialization for residents who love the city, the outdoors, the history of Dayton, and Woodland itself.
The wall is built into a graded hillside with a 2-foot elevation above grade. 150 niches containing a combination of single, side by side companions and single front double depth niches are protected by black granite niche plates which were installed in 2010. In late summer, early fall of 2017, a new columbarium structure containing 95 niches has been installed at Lookout.

The Lookout Tower is an exact replica of the Tower featured in an 1899 Dayton Daily News Article about Woodland. Perched upon the highest elevation in Dayton, it served as both a beacon and watchtower for the entire valley during the 1800s and early 1900s.
The replica tower, completed in Spring 2010, again serves as a landmark for decades to come.


About Woodland Cemetery & Arboretum
Founded in 1841, Woodland Cemetery is one of the nation's oldest rural garden cemeteries and a unique cultural, botanical and educational resource in the heart of Dayton, Ohio. Over 3,000 trees and 165 specimens of native Midwestern woody plants grace the Arboretum's 200 verdant acres of rolling hills. Many of the trees are more than a century old and 10 have been designated "Ohio Champions" by the Ohio Forestry Association. The Romanesque gateway, chapel, and office, completed in 1889 are on the National Register of Historic Places with the chapel featuring one of the finest original Tiffany windows in the country. The Woodland Mausoleum adds a modern touch to this historic site while featuring 12 beautiful stained glass windows depicting woodland themes from literature and a magnificent rendition of "The Messiah." Thousands tour the grounds each year to visit the gravesites of Wilbur and Orville Wright, poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, inventor Charles F. Kettering; Queen and King of the Gypsies, Matilda and Levi Stanley; Governor James Cox; writer Erma Bombeck; founder of the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Jeraldyne Blunden; and entrepreneurs John H. Patterson (NCR), George P. Huffman (Huffy Bicycles), George Mead (Mead Paper), and Preserved Smith (Barney & Smith Mfg. Co.).
