Caballero Rivero Woodlawn Park North Cemetery and Mausoleum
Caballero Rivero Woodlawn North Park Cemetery and Mausoleum is one of the oldest cemeteries in Miami, Florida. Woodlawn Park Cemetery – North was established in 1913 by three pioneers in Miami’s early history – Thomas O. Wilson, William N. Urmey and Clifton D. Benson. The Woodlawn group of cemeteries grew throughout the years, and funeral homes were added as well. They invested thousands of dollars importing rare tropical trees and shrubs, including the first schefflera (umbrella trees) and mahogany trees, to this country.
Woodlawn Park in 1926 commissioned a noted mausoleum architect, McDonald Lovell, to design a mausoleum for the park. The present building covers more than a city block, accented with marble, stained glass and hand-wrought bronze gates.
In 1990, Caballero Funeral Homes (established in 1857 in Havana, Cuba) joined Woodlawn Park Cemeteries and Funeral Home and in 1993, Rivero Funeral Homes (established in 1946 in Havana, Cuba), the largest funeral home business in Florida, was acquired also and the name was changed to Caballero Rivero Woodlawn North Park Cemetery and Mausoleum.
Caballero Rivero Woodlawn North Park Cemetery and Mausoleum is located at 3260 SW 8th St, Miami FL 33135, on SW 8 Street, between 32 and 33 Avenue.
