The cemetery has a long history and some very noteworthy people have been interned there.

According to the cemetery website , "It's sixty level acres include mausoleums in classical, Victorian, Egyptian, and Richardson rustic designs. These varied structures, along with angels, obelisks, and military memorials have caused Woodland to be favorably recognized in Silent Cities: The Evolution of the American Cemetery (1989) as possessing a "profusion of well-designed monuments." In addition to being a Cleveland Landmark, since 1986 Woodland Cemetery has had the rare distinction of being listed on the National Register of Historic Places."
