Lakewood is known for its landscape. Designed as a “garden” or “rural” cemetery, Lakewood has been carefully planned and developed since the 1870s. Eleven miles of wide, winding roads and an eight-acre lake were built by workers aided by horses and wagons decades ago.
Within this lovely landscape, traditional lots are available in a variety of locations at various prices.
Single grave lots feature a bronze or granite marker with the name/dates of the person buried there. Family lots, sometimes called monument lots, may contain as few as two or three graves or several dozen. Each family lot has its own distinguishing monument, and markers may be placed at the gravesite of individual members.
