The History of Lakeview
Lakeview Cemetery is the oldest cemetery owned by the City and is located south of Pershing Blvd. with access off Seymour Ave. For well over 100 years Lakeview Cemetery has functioned as the final resting place for Cheyenne residents. It has also served as a repository of the City's history and as a reflection of the growth and development of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and the West.
A historical walking tour is available that will introduce you to the famous and the not so famous in Cheyenne's history.
Lakeview Cemetery is fully operational with many burial spaces still available. There are many older stones among the newer ones.
Lakeview Cemetery was awarded a Certificate of Special Recognition for Historical Preservation for preserving the heritage of Cheyenne in 1990; and it was also awarded the Wyoming State Historical Society Award in 1991 for promotion and preservation of Wyoming history.
