Bronswood Cemetery

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 27 June 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Bronswood Cemetery founded around 1887 by Gabriel Wright and since then it has been owned by only three Hinsdale families. Wright sold it in 1910 to Charles A. Brown, who changed the name from Oak Forest to Bronswood. In August of 1946, the Brown family sold the cemetery company to Philip R. Clarke. All of the current shareholders of Bronswood are descendants of Mr. Clarke
