Details

For more than 150 years, Jamestown’s Lake View Cemetery has been a constant reminder of what Jamestown once was, still is and will be in the future.  Lake View is a place where you can trace Jamestown’s history, from its founding by James Prendergast in 1809, to New York State Governor, Reuben E. Fenton, who led the state during the time of the Civil War, to Benjamin Franklin Goodrich  one of the country’s first producers of rubber goods, to Lucille Ball, “America’s Queen of Comedy”.  Lake View is home to more than 44,000 souls, each having an important story to tell. Lake View Cemetery is the final resting place for over 2,900 veterans, spanning time from the American Revolution up to and including today's veterans. Three Medal of Honor receipients are among them.
