Greenwood Cemetery is a registered historic district in Hamilton, Ohio, listed in the National Register of Historic Places on July 22, 1994. It contains 5 contributing buildings. Greenwood is designed in the style of a landscaped park and garden with mortuary art and statues among the graves.
In 1848 the Greenwood Cemetery Association was created in order to establish a community cemetery. Land to create the cemetery was purchased from local resident David Bigham, and planned by Adolph Strauch. Greenwood Cemetery was modeled after Mount Auburn Cemetery in Boston and Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati which had also been designed by Strauch.
Greenwood is the final resting place for Zapp lead singer and composer Roger Troutman and Family Feud host Ray Combs. The cemetery also holds deceased veterans of wars from the American Revolution to the present, and the only Civil War general from Butler County.
