Fort Leavenworth is the oldest US army fort in continuous existence west of the Mississippi River. Established in 1827 as a frontier post to protect trade on the Santa Fe Trail, it also became essential to overland expansion along the Oregon-California Trail. In 1834 the fort became headquarters for the US Dragoons, the army's first permanent mounted regiment. During the Mexican War, the Army of the West left from Fort Leavenworth. When Kansas achieved territorial status in 1854, Governor Andrew Reeder first had his office at the fort. During the Civil War, the fort was a critical western linchpin for the Union, serving as an arsenal and training point. After the Civil War, Colonel Benjamin Grierson formed the black 10th Cavalry Regiment that distinguished itself throughout the frontier. Fort Leavenworth is the home of the US Army Command and General Staff College, the highest ranked school in the army educational system. Also on the fort are the "Rookery" (c. 1830), which is the oldest continuously occupied residence in Kansas; the Post Chapel (1872); the Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery; and the Buffalo Soldier Monument honoring the 9th and 10th U.S. Cavalry regiments.

Leavenworth (Leavenworth County)
Listed in National Register May 13, 2022

Architect: Not listed
Area of Significance: cemetery
Architectural Style(s): Other

Greenwood Cemetery is important for its association with Kansas and local history beginning in the territorial period and the first century of history in Kansas. In proximity to the oldest fort west of the Mississippi, Fort Leavenworth, much activity occurred in Leavenworth County, where major trails traversed the land, accommodating westward expansion as well as the settlement of Leavenworth. The impetus for the founding of Greenwood Cemetery is the first non-sectarian cemetery in the vicinity, Pilot Knob/Mount Aurora, was becoming increasingly difficult to access. Greenwood was founded in 1863 with the purchase of 12 acres of rural farmland by Mrs. Mary A. Davis, wife of Dr. James Davis, local physician. It is a good example of the rural or garden cemetery design, popular in the United States and Europe in the mid-nineteenth century. Now considered abandoned, it is important to preserve the cemetery due to its connection to early Leavenworth history.
