The Lexington Cemetery is more than a place of serenity for those buried there. It is a community memorial grounds that celebrates life in a park-like setting. In spring, an avenue of dogwoods, color crab apples, ornamental magnolias and pink weeping cherries lead to 16,000 blooming tulips and fields of spring beauties. This cemetery is a 170 acre national arboretum with more than 200 species of trees. A mecca for birds, the Audubon Society has identified 179 species on the grounds.
During the year, special events are conducted to foster an appreciation of this community asset, including Easter Sunrise services, a Memorial Day Observance, as well as horticultural, historical, cultural and aftercare programs.
