Walk @ Forest Lawn Cemetery

Let's go for a walk around Forest Lawn Cemetery.  Although they have paid, guided tours, we'll rough it and wander around by ourselves. The parking lot near the entrance gate is small so alternately you can park on the side of one of the roads inside the cemetery.

 

Background: Founded in 1849, with more than 155,000 residents inside its 269 acres, Forest Lawn is one of America’s premier historic cemeteries. It is home to a U.S. President, 47 Buffalo mayors, and many of the other great citizens who shaped the historic landscape of Western New York during the past century and a half.

    Sorry I was lagging behind talking with mike about how to make the best milkshake. It was quite a debate. I look forward to meeting those I haven't met before soon!

    See you at 11am in front of the main office building. 1) Go through the main entrance gate which is located at the intersection of Delaware Ave and Delevan.

    2) Park in the little small parking lot on your left. It holds maybe 20 cars. Alternately, you can park on the side of any of the cemetery roads. I am going to park on a side street outside of the cemetery since the lot is so small.

    3) Walk 2 seconds to the main office building and we'll meet outside that building.

    4) If you need restrooms they are located in a small building next to the main office building.

    Since we're not taking one of their paid tours, we'll just walk around until we're tired.

      By improvising I meant that I will be making up fake stories that hopefully you'll believe.
