Mission Statement:

The FHHPA exists to support the environmental, educational, and historic preservation efforts  of Milwaukee’s oldest operating cemetery, Forest Home Cemetery & Arboretum. We believe in sharing our abundant natural resources with our community while educating residents about their city’s rich, diverse history. As a national historic site with an internationally accredited arboretum, we seek to preserve this special place to benefit the living and surrounding community. Through public engagement, we foster support to preserve and enhance the monuments, buildings and grounds for future generations.
