Oskaloosa's municipal cemetery.
"The Forest Cemetery Association was established in August of 1860 in Oskaloosa Iowa. A committee of prominent men in the community formed the Articles of Corporation and appointed a board. It started with 20 acres and has since grown to 80 acres - 60 have been developed and there are still 20 acres in reserve. Forest Cemetery is a non-profit corporation, governed by Board of Directors consisting of 5 board members. It is a lot owner's cemetery, which means everyone that owns a lot can attend the annual board meetings. We do not receive any funding from the city or county. Forest Cemetery became a Perpetual Care Cemetery in 1925. We offer genealogy information, including maps, upon request. You can now view our burial data, and get maps by using the form on the left side of this page."
