I strolled another section of Lakeview Cemetery yesterday. You’ll see an American Civil War grave, several smaller stones, which say “Father” or Mother” and no other name, and one plot with LOTS of family members buried around it.
The first burial was in 1800. There are one 10,300 graves. In fact, Lakeview Cemetery still allows burials.
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.
