Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo New York.
As we drove by following directions given to us by our GPS, I saw a small deer grazing casually. Squirrels and birds were everywhere too. The grounds were completely relaxing and peaceful.
This cemetery offers tours, which would have been great. Unfortunately, we planned our trip through Buffalo during a brief period when tours were not available.
It was OK though, as a very nice and easy to use map of the site is available at the front entrance area.
There were a few specific spots I really wanted to see.
Several significant Civil War and Native American historic figures rest here.
The main reason that most visit here are probably for a former President of the US, and a former rock star.
President number 13, Millard Fillmore's grave is marked by a pink obelisk.
Legendary musician Rick James rests not too far away from Fillmore.
