I discovered this cemetery while researching family history. The staff on hand to assist were helpful and the actual grounds were stunningly beautiful and well-kept.

The Lakewood Chapel is a gem of old-world craftsmanship. A serene spot with beautiful mosaics. Well worth a visit.

My kids and I like to drive through this cemetery. They have some very cool old headstones and mausoleums. We have also seen several deer hanging out in the cemetery. It is a large cemetery located close to Lake Calhoun.

This is a beautiful place with nice views. It is visitor friendly and an easy tour on bicycle or car. There is a visitor's center and a map is available showing several points of interest.
