Historic Elmwood Pinewood, Inc.

Raise money for Historic Elmwood Pinewood, Inc.

HEPI is a 501(3) non-profit dedicated to preserving, restoring, enhancing, and sharing the original historic and park-like atmosphere of Elmwood, Pinewood, and Settler’s Cemeteries.

Before there was a Department of Parks and Recreation, cemeteries were purposely designed for dual-use. Easter and Halloween parades were conducted in Elmwood. Families had picnics and children played in the green space. We at HEPI believe that we, in concert with the City, can provide both a safe, friendly, and serene environment for those interred, those visiting loved ones, and those wanting to learn about our past or just take a break from the hubbub.

The restoration of the Gardner’s House into an office, education center and gift shop along with hundreds of monuments for whom there are no family caretakers are just the beginning for HEPI. For more information about HEPI, its plans and these cemeteries visit
