Lakewood Cemetery – Minneapolis, MN

Lakewood Cemetery, established in 1871, is 250-acres of wooded hills between Lakes Calhoun and Harriet in south Minneapolis. It is a public, non-profit, non-denominational cemetery with some extraordinary pieces of architecture. These images were taken on August 30, 2000.

The next images were taken in August of 2012:
 As with other garden cemeteries from the late 1800's, this one is filled with the founding fathers of the city, such as George Dayton (founder of the department store that became Target Corporation); John S Pillsbury (Flour company now part of General Mills); his grandson, John Pillsbury Snyder and wife, Nellie, who were both Titanic survivors; T.B. Walker (lumberman who started Walker Art Center); Franklin C. Mars (creator of the Milky Way candy bar).

 Also the grave of Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey:
