Northview Cemetery is just north of Northview Home, Waukesha. Northview Home is just a little east of the northwest corner of Highway T and Northview Road, Section 28, Pewaukee Township.
This inactive cemetery was established between September, 1904 and June 1905, when 75 burials from the old Waukesha County Poor House in Vernon were relocated to this site. These reburials were reported to have been in the northwest corner of the new cemetery. The cemetery apparently had two separate sections, sometimes referred to in the death records at the Register of Deeds office as the Waukesha County Poor Farm Cemetery or the Waukesha County Home Cemetery or the Waukesha County Insane Asylum Cemetery. The cemetery was sometimes used by the Waukesha County Coroner to bury unknown and unclaimed bodies. The last known burial was in 1951. Today the cemetery is referred to as the Northview Home Cemetery.
All known early records books for the cemetery, previously held by Northview Home, have been transferred to the Waukesha County Museum. Northview Home, later called Linden Grove, is located at N1 W25042 Northview Road, Waukesha, WI 53188.
At the Waukesha County Museum there are M-841 County Records, Waukesha County Asylum for Chronic Insane and County Home. Cemetery Records 1881-1923, 1942, 1951. Transcript available. The first 75 burials listed in this register had numbered tombstones and were moved in 1904-1905 from the Vernon cemetery. Aslo, "Study of Northview Cemetery," Donald J.
