Lakeview Cemetery is large, well laid out, filled with big old trees, and many roads/paths which many use for jogging or walking. The office is able to tell you where to find the people you are looking for. At different times of the year there...More

The cemetery is very historic and beautiful. The hearts painted on the road leading up to Lucille Ball’s gravesite is very thoughtful. The grounds are nicely kept. However, it’s a cemetery.

This is an amazing cemetery with history you won't believe! It goes on forever. Great place to walk in a park like setting. I felt safe walking alone.

It was easy to find her grave once we actually had a map and daylight. There are 6 entrances to this larger-than-it-appears, cemetery. Her gravesite, along with those of other relatives, are well-maintained and easily accessible.

This cemetery is a step into history. Established in 1848, it was Jamestown's third established cemetery. The founding fathers of Prendergast, Foote and Fenton are all buried here. As well as Jamestown's favorite comedian Lucille Ball. There are Lucy logos on the pavement to mark...More
