Wood National Cemetery

Wood National Cemetery is located on the grounds of a former Soldiers Home that today is called the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center.

From 1867 until 1871, the home buried its soldiers in private cemeteries in the Milwaukee area. In 1871, a cemetery opened on the grounds. Originally known only as Soldiers Home Cemetery, it wasn’t until 1937 the name was changed to honor General George Wood, a longtime member of the Soldiers’ Home’s Board of Managers. It became a national cemetery in 1973.

Through 2008, there have been 38,193 burials here.
