Holy Sepulchre Cemetery is located at 4912 Leavenworth Street. This Catholic cemetery was founded on June 1, 1873.
The cemetery rises to a pretty substantial hill in the middle, where there is a circular turnaround, and has a nice view of lower mid-town Omaha.
Holy Sepulchre has many of the prominent founding Omahans in it who were Catholic; Forest Lawn has most of the richer early Omahans, and Prospect Hill holds the majority of the earliest and most historic founders. However, unlike Forest Lawn, Holy Sepulchre has been vandalized to a greater extent and all of the mausoleums have been damaged, some quite severely.
John Albert McShane (1850-1923), congressman from 1887-1889, is buried here.
