Downtown Historic Cemeteries

The City of Lakeland’s oldest cemeteries are Lakeview, Roselawn, and Tiger Flowers, located at Ingraham Avenue and Lake Parker Street just north of downtown. The cemeteries date back to 1886 and are the final resting areas for some of Lakeland’s early settlers and business and civic leaders.

All spaces have been sold for many years, with approximately ten burials each year. Also at Roselawn cemetery is the Scott Morris Mausoleum, built in 1923.
