Woodlawn Cemetery Mausoleum

Although the distinguished women who are buried in Woodlawn Cemetery didn't make their mark there while living, visiting this 400-acre cemetery can be a stroll through the history and culture of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Among those interred in the rolling hills of the North Bronx are Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, Gertrude Ederle, Antoinette Perry, Nellie Bly, Madame C. J. Walker, and Celia Cruz. Respectful visitors are welcome, but you'll need a permit for photography.
