Lake View Cemetery, established in 1869 with over 285 acres, operates one of the country’s most unique rural garden cemeteries featuring hundreds of varieties of trees, shrubs and lush natural areas. Some specimen trees date back to Moses Cleaveland’s arrival on the banks of the Cuyahoga River more than 200 years ago. Winding paths over rolling hills, extensive water courses and ponds, and open meadows fringed by forests- these were among the charming features that distinguished Lake View as a rural garden cemetery. Join us as we walk through parts of the cemetery to discuss the “Rural Garden Cemetery Movement”, a place for the living and how 150 years later this trend is still relevant.
