Forest Lawn’s 349 acres annually ranks as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the country and the largest in the Midwest.
Over the years, the beautiful cemetery has been maintained by the perpetual care fund, financed through the receipts of lot sales. The cemetery was developed on the park plan, which has ensured the sweep of velvety lawns and smooth, well-kept appearance. Wide, hard-surfaced roads, with rolling hills, wind through the forest providing easy access to all gravesites.
There are 4 Nebraska State Champion Trees with just about every tree that can grow in our Northeast zone within our Arboretum.
Our memorial art is some of the most impressive in the nation, and the cemetery’s Historical Chapel is a work of art with a granite exterior, roof, mosaic tiles, stained glass windows and a columbarium in the lower level.
Forest Lawn is the only cemetery in the midwest that is a Arboretum and a bird sanctuary with its own crematory.
