Land For Wadsworth Cemetery Once Owned By Son Of Historic Abolitionist

In 1817, a one-acre parcel of land was utilized for the creation of Woodlawn Cemetery in Medina County. The property was a hilly terrain and represented one of the largest peaks in the region.

This early portion of land was once owned by Owen Brown of Hudson, then a county commissioner. His father was John Brown, early activist and leading figure in the abolitionist movement in the pre-Civil War United States.

Kotecki Family Memorials maintain the largest collection of headstone, marker and memorial options within the county. Please submit an online proposal and pricing request.
