Details

Begun in 1849 on 269 acres, Forest Lawn is one of America`s premier historic cemeteries. Buried here are U.S. President Millard Fillmore, 47 Buffalo mayors, Seneca Indian Chief Red Jacket, Shirley Chisholm (the first African American woman elected to the U.S. Congress), Mary Burnett Talbert (civil rights pioneer who formed the Niagara Movement which become the NAACP) and many other great citizens who shaped the historic landscape of Western New York. Unique grave markers and the Birge Memorial can be seen on a tour in which actors portray some of the famous Buffalonians who are buried here.
