  • A must-go when you visit Jamestown. The cemetery closes early. Once you get through the main gate look for the hearts on the pavement, they'll lead you right to Lucille Ball's grave. Originally...

  • If you loved Lucy, you have to go here to pay your respects! I went on a bus tour. Saw her birth place, the home she grew up in, her high school location, her theatre venues. And the museum...

  • Touring Jamestown and following Lucille Ball history has been an adventure. The resting place is everything imagined based on her character. The monument stands as a testament to family devotion...

  • Lake view cemetery houses the final remains of Lucille Ball. Following her death Lucy was cremated and her ashes are buried in a family plot. A heart pathway takes you to an I love Lucy trash can so you know where to find the tombstone. A short walk takes you to the heart engraved headstone. Lucille Ball is buried here with her parents and brother Fred. Next to the stone are headstones of the Hunt family which was part of her mother’s lineage. Cemetery is well kept and easy to walk in. A fitting tribute for a comedy legend who was born and raised in this town.
  • I just found my uncle stone had be placed. How gorgeous!! Its been laid so perfectly without a spec of dirt on it. Many thanks to those workers and to the head office for helping me chose what to add on the stone and how to have it arranged so that it looked really nice.
  • A grave of Lucille Ball is really nice.
  • Vary well kept
  • My friend and I love to walk in this cemetery.They take such good care of it!
