I only had a little bit of time to drive through the cemetery. It has a staggering number of impressive monuments. I recommend getting a map (if they are available) and budgeting a lot of time to do the place proper justice.

This may sound weird bu it’s one of my favorite places to walk. It’s peaceful, quiet and beautiful. If you’re interested, there’s a ton of history stored within these gates and there are species of trees there that are not found anywhere else in buffalo!...More

The two hour tour was entertaining and educational. Loved the 'residents' that came out to meet us! It was a beautiful and shaded walk and the bottle of water that we were given was appreciated.
