Friends of Lakeview Cemetery 

The Friends of Lakeview Cemetery have completed several restoration projects thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers. These projects include: 

  • Restoration of the Louisa Howard Chapel. This magnificent structure is now fully restored and open to the public. 
  • Replacement of the wooden gazebo that has provided sanctuary for cemetery visitors for decades. This structure had suffered significant deterioration due to its prolonged exposure to the elements but an accurate reproduction has replaced the original structure. 
  • Renovation of the historic fountain built in the mid-1800’s. A replica fountain was recently installed thanks to the Friends fundraising efforts. 

To learn more about the projects or to make a donation, please contact Diana Carlisle, President, Friends of Lakeview Cemetery at (802) 862-3939.
