Lakeview Cemetery Tour - October 21, 2017, 10am

The youngest of Burlington's municipal cemeteries, Lakeview Cemetery was established in 1867 and is the resting place for many notable Burlington residents. Part of the rural cemetery movement of the mid-19th century, Lakeview offers picturesque views of Lake Champlain, diverse plantings and meandering paths, along with beautiful monuments.

Meet at the main entrance to Lakeview Cemetery on North Avenue in Burlington.
