Highland Lawn Cemetery is owned and managed by the City of Terre Haute.


Highland Lawn Cemetery was established in 1884 and is the second cemetery that the City of Terre Haute built to address the need for more burial space. The city's first cemetery, Woodlawn Cemetery, built in 1839, consisted of 40 acres. But by the early 1880s, with the city growing quickly, the need for more burial space was apparent.

At 139 acres in size, Highland Lawn Cemetery is the second largest burial ground in the State of Indiana. In 1990 it was added to the National Registry of Historic Places.

Cemetery Records

Records linked below were acquired from the City of Terre Haute on June 8, 2023 from the city's website. These had been published in a PDF file. The PDF text was very tiny and difficult to read, moreover, there was a "Comments" column that bled off the page and was pushed down below the records. Also, the PDF mixed together records for both Woodlawn and Highland Lawn cemeteries.

We converted the PDF into HTML, relaligned the Comments column to match the records, and separated records by cemetery.

Note: these records include burials beginning in 1839 all the way up to December 10, 2012. After that date, the city has not made records available for public viewing.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
