Woodlawn Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in New York City and a designated National Historic Landmark. Located in Woodlawn, Bronx, New York City, it has the character of a rural cemetery. Woodlawn Cemetery opened during the Civil War in 1863, in what was then southern Westchester County, in an area that was annexed to New York City in 1874. It is notable in part as the final resting place of some great American figures, such as authors Countee Cullen, Nellie Bly, and Herman Melville, musicians Irving Berlin, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, W. C. Handy, and Max Roach, husband and wife magicians Alexander Herrmann and Adelaide Herrmann, and businessmen such as shipping magnate Archibald Gracie. Holly Woodlawn, after changing her name to such, falsely told people she was the heiress to Woodlawn Cemetery.
