History of LaBelle Cemetery

The original cemetery was established May 15, 1851 by the Oconomowoc Cemetery Association. This first cemetery, called Oconomowoc Cemetery was along Walnut Street between Wisconsin Avenue and the Norwegian Bridge in what is now a residential and commercial area. Burials were made there until 1864, when it was decided that a larger area would be required for the cemetery. A new site was selected and named La Belle Cemetery. All of the owners of lots in Oconomowoc Cemetery were given lots in the new cemetery in exchange and the bodies were relocated to La Belle Cemetery. The old cemetery was sold in January, 1865.


There are cemetery records 1851-date, including the reburials from the Oconomowoc Cemetery. There is a chart of the cemetery. The records are not available for public research. The Oconomowoc Cemetery Association will answer mail requests. Currently there is no charge. Contact:
