100th Anniversary

Our Second Centennial

The Lithuanian National Cemetery has proudly entered into its second centennial. Over many years of its existence it became a final place of eternal rest to over thirteen thousand people, who lived and strived, achieved and gained and as any human being had their moments of loss and suffering. This cemetery is a reflection of many generations of Lithuanian Americans who contributed to the growth of their New Country, while maintaining love and respect to their motherland and to the Lithuanian spirit and traditions.

America the Beautiful

Surrounded by old oak trees and greenery.

Our beautiful cemetery is surrounded by mature oak trees and greenery. For over 100 years, our cemetery has been a resting place for many Lithuanian political, cultural and scientific dignitaries, as well as local friends and neighbors. A walk in around you will see many beautiful monuments that symbolize Lithuanian heritage, religious and personal styles (old and new).
