Oulu Lutheran Cemetery, Oulu Township, Bayfield County, Wisconsin


   The first burial in Oulu was that of Mr. Heikkila, father of Andrew Heikkila. There was no cemetery, so he was buried on the north side of Copper Hill, which the son thought was part of their homestead. However, after the land was surveyed, this became a road and the grave is partly under the road going east and west in Section 8.
   In 1896 it was decided that the town needed a cemetery. John Tuura donated the land at a cost of $1.00. The cemetery is used by all denominations.
   This cemetery is located across the road from the Pioneer School in Section 7. It is known as the Oulu Lutheran Cemetery, and most of the pioneer settlers are buried there.
   The Swedish Cemetery is located on the same property as the Baptist Church. The land was donated by Mr. Oscar Abrahamson.
   In 1935 the townspeople felt that still another cemetery was needed. This is located on the top of Copper Hill and is known as the Hill Crest Cemetery.
