If you’re looking for something unique, check out one of the Forest Home Cemetery public tours. Forest Home Cemetery is the final resting place of many prominent Milwaukee figures such as beer barons Joseph Schlitz and Frederick Pabst, motorcycle co-founder William Davidson, typewriter inventor Christopher Sholes and more. The 200-acre cemetery has been designated as an official Milwaukee Landmark and is also listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The historic Landmark Chapel was constructed in 1890 and features an aged reddish-brown Lake Superior sandstone. Public tours are offered most weekends from mid-May through September. Visit their website for a schedule. Additionally, a selection of private group tours can be booked, and self-guided driving or walking tours can be taken during hours the grounds are open. A self-guided tour map is available on their website.
