A Brief History of the Cathedral’s Greek Orthodox Cemeteries

By Nicholas M. Prevas, Parish Historian

In Baltimore County, at the head of Gwynn Oak Avenue is Woodlawn, where the Woodlawn Cemetery Company was established in 1903. It was here that the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Community of Baltimore began its first cemetery. Four distinct purchases would occur in the North Avon Section of that cemetery between 1912 and 1940.

The first section, known as the Greek Circle, was acquired in January of 1912. It was a 1,000-square-foot parcel of land in the shape of a circle with about 50 gravesites arranged in five rows. The second acquisition, in August of 1916, was called the Greek Plot

Wright's circular design uses two important elements from Greek Orthodox churches, the dome and the Greek cross. The shallow concrete dome (106 feet in diameter) is superimposed on a floor plan in the shape of a Greek cross; the Greek cross inscribed within a circle is a key design element in the details of the church as well.
