Town of Forestville, Door County, Wisconsin

Location: SE Corner SW1/4 SE1/4 Section 30, Town of Forestville. 1 mile west of the Village of Forestville on County Trunk J and before County Trunk D. The cemetery is on the north side of County Trunk J.

Brown Church Cemetery was first called the Emanuel Lutheran Cemetery and the church was located just west of the cemetery. The land was donated by the Miller family. Later the cemetery was called the "Brown Church Cemetery" after the color of the church. In 1908 the congregation built a new church in Kolberg, Town of Brussels and the old one was torn down. Some people call the cemetery "Woller Cemetery" but this name was not official as of 1976. The cemetery is maintained in good condition by the Congregation.
