Wellwood is very nicely kept, with wide "streets" and neat plantings. I noticed one Hasidic section with little metal boxes for candles. The headstones were entirely in Hebrew. There are lots of slate paths in the different sections of the cemetery so that you do not have to walk over graves very much to get from one row to another. [For visitors: A building just past the administration building has restrooms.] Wellwood was easily accessible from the highway. I have a plot map of the cemetery. Source: Arielle K.
