Lakeview Cemetery

The first lot in the Nashville Lakeview Cemetery was bought by Len Strow for $10. There are three additions in the cemetery. (Along with a Memorial Garden still under construction - 2007) The old part (OA) of the cemetery has 549 lots. The new part (NA) has 360 lots and the newer addition (XA) has 560 lots. The purchase of a lot - which has six plots - includes perpetual care. The cemetery also includes a mausoleum which was built in 1920.

When Daniel Smith, who lived in Nashville, died in 1934, he left a bequest of $10,000 to Lakeview Cemetery to build a chapel in memory of his wife, Sylvia Teen, who died in 1908.

The Chapel was built in 1958. The bequest with interest was then $10,985.46. The cost of building the Chapel was $10,316.61. The balance was turned back to the village to buy government bonds. The Chapel named Teen Smith Memorial Chapel, includes the Chapel Room which will seat better than 100 people and the basement shop for cemetery equipment.
