If Lake View Cemetery is good enough for a president, a handful of gangsters and John D. Rockefeller, then it’s good enough for the rest of us.

That’s especially true in the fall. Lake View Cemetery’s Victorian-style landscaping explodes with autumn foliage, giving a flamboyant backdrop to the somber setting.

Old cemetery enthusiasts already have Lake View on their radar. This is a cemetery designed for strolling, with plenty of roads for rambling and contemplation.
