Valhalla Memorial Gardens is located on the northwest side of Milwaukee at 5402 N. 91st St..
The cemetery was formerly owned by Valhalla Memorial Gardens Inc. In 2007, the 80-acre property was sold to Bronzestone Group of Nashotah, the cemetery arm of Granite Resources Corp at a cost of $800,000. Half of the property is occupied by graves, the remaining land is open. The site also includes a crematorium. Prior to the purchase the memorial park was not well-maintained. Bronzestone plans to spend about $200,000 to improve its appearance and infrastructure.
