Lincoln Memorial Cemetery

Lincoln Memorial Cemetery opened in 1927. With many mature trees and a pond, the cemetery is very calm and peaceful, with a park-like atmosphere. Families of fox are occasionally spotted on the grounds as well, making for a nice surprise.

37 different gardens

Spanning the park's 130 acres of carefully tended lawns are 37 different gardens. Many of the gardens reflect religious and patriotic themes. We also have a special garden for veterans which also showcases the Avenue of Flags. A large stone obelisk, another special feature of the property, can be found in the Masonic Circle.

Our cemetery has a large Catholic garden in conjunction with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lincoln, although you do not need to be affiliated with a specific church to be buried there.

"Lincoln Memorial lets you decide whether you want a large elaborate service, something more modest or just a burial. No high pressure sales. I appreciated this because I was making arrangements not by choice but by responsibility as the closest living relative."
