Become briefly acquainted with Daniel C. Linsley in this video. He’s the one who designed the egg-shaped railroad tunnel in the Burlington, Vermont Intervale, for instance, among so many other interesting projects DC Linsley did in the US.
When Lakeview Cemetery in Burlington, Vermont opened to the public in 1872, it was as a Victorian Lawn Park cemetery. Its design was meant to encourage people to visit. They were expected to walk the intentionally laid paths (now seven miles of them!), commune with nature, enjoy the fresh air and lake view. As well as picnic with family and friends both alive and not.
