This was included as part of our FLW tour (his Blue Sky Mausoleum). I enjoyed the docent's commentary as we drove through the cemetery and her ability to like history to their "permanent residents."

Took the walking tour, grounds are beautiful. Tour was very informative and full of history, especially enjoyed the reenactors we meet during the tour. A well spent afternoon.

This was a beautiful cemetery. Lot's of famous people are buried here. There's even a building where you can trace records back to find ancestors. The grounds are well kept. It's a good stop for a little history on your journey.

Very good maps and also tours are available. The grounds are lovely, and there are some marvelous monuments including a glass one with full size figures inside. Drive through and stop at any sites that interest you.
