Thanks for those very true comments!

The President Fillmore lot is also home to his first wife Abigail, their daughter, Mary Abigail, their son Millard Powers and his second wife Caroline Carmichael. The University of Buffalo hosts an annual birthday celebration every January 7 for the President right at the burial site. Join us next year!

Cocoa and coffee in the chapel afterwards for all!

“A Beautiful Treasure”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

If you love beautiful architecture (Frank Lloyd Wright) and history, Forest Lawn Cemetery is a must see! You can walk through on your own or take a paid tour via trolley or walking (check out the website). Bring your camera!

“A Momument”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

It is hard to describe a cemetery as a park and place of serenity, beauty, and of historical proportion, yet here we have it in our own backyard

Yes Mary... WNY is the country's best kept secret. With the beauty of the city and surrounding areas plus authentic history aren't we lucky to have this all in like you said, "Our own back yard?"
