About Lakewood


About Lakewood Cemetery

Lakewood Cemetery is a special place. It's a haven of beauty, art and history, but our most important role is to serve families by providing a place of remembrance for loved ones.

Memorial property and cremation choices
With more than 250 acres, Lakewood will continue to provide memorial property and cremation choices for many years to come. As a nonprofit organization, all funds generated from sales at Lakewood are contributed to a trust fund that is used for the continual care of the cemetery. For more information, visit the cremation or memorial property sections of this site.

History, art & gardens
Lakewood’s park-like grounds have preserved the history of our community’s people, cultures and events since 1871. We have captured some of this history, as well as information about funerary art and architecture found at Lakewood, and we share it with the community in a variety of ways. Learn more in the tours and events and history and art sections of this site.
