Historic Elmwood Cemetery is located at the northern end of the Disraeli Freeway. The 38 acre site is nestled along the Red River and is easily accessible by vehicle through the gate off Hespeler Avenue. Magnificent old elm trees dot the landscape of this beautifully restored cemetery. It is run as a non-profit organization by The Friends of the Elmwood Cemetery. As one of Winnipeg’s oldest and largest cemeteries it is rich in history and many prominent Canadians are interred there.
