"In 1872 a nonprofit citizens group acquired the 47-acre cemetery and incorporated as the “Oak Grove Cemetery Association of La Crosse” with the resolve to restore and improve the cemetery grounds. By the early 1880s, attorney and civic leader Joseph W. Losey was president of the cemetery board and actively involved in the beautification efforts." (Submitted on February 25, 2009.)
