Forest Home offers a variety of walking tours of the cemetery on Saturdays. The guided tours cover different aspects of people important to Milwaukee's founding and growth.

Serene, historic, and mysterious. Well maintained and surprisingly easy to walk through. It offers many paths and interesting markers along with mature trees to view.

It seems like the whole history of Milwaukee can be experienced here. I spent a couple hours here with my daughter, just driving around then getting out to explore. I need more time here!
