Greenwood Cemetery is home to a number of Dallas mayors, sheriffs, and other notables. It was also a predominant white Anglo-Saxon protestant cemetery. Even the pauper's row was restricted to those in that ethnic group. Greenwood is huge. Also, it is the only one of the four cemeteries discussed here that closes it's gates each day. The others remain open all the time from what I can tell.
One of four historic cemeteries in Uptown Dallas. These four cemeteries house a lot of the city's early settlers, and all are well maintained. Uptown Dallas is a trendy urban development area, so my guess is that the cemeteries will continue to be kept in good repair, as they add a certain niche to the location. There is a visitor bureau office in the area and they offer printed maps guiding you through a walking tour off all four cemeteries.
