HISTORY

Lakeview Cemetery located in Workman Township (not to be confused with Lakeview Cemetery in Aitkin Township) was discussed by the Board of Supervisors at their April 2015 meeting concerning upgrades that would enhance the cemetery appearance. Work began with a thorough brushing and tree trimming, leveling of soil in parts of the cemetery, and realigning some of the headstones and markers that were no longer level or straight. A new metal arch was erected over the main entrance. The arch was fabricated by Al's Welding and Sandblasting of Aitkin. In addition a flagpole was placed on either side of the arch. One flagpole displays the United States flag and the Prisoner of War flag. The other flagpole has the State of Minnesota flag and the Aitkin County flag. Both flagpoles have solar lighting so that the flags are illuminated when it is dark. This is a big improvement for the cemetery with much better identification and appearance.
 
Lakeview Cemetery was established in 1903 and is approximately two acres. It has a number of tall, majestic pine trees on the cemetery and is surrounded by a nice grove of oak, birch and other tree varieties on the three sides of the cemetery. Many relatives and friends of individuals buried at the cemetery decorate the gravesite with flowers and pennants making the cemetery even more attractive. The township also maintains a container of colorful flowers.
 
Anyone, whether a resident of Workman Township or not, may be buried at the cemetery. The cemetery provides for both traditional burial and cremation urns. The cemetery is located east of the township hall at 23647 480th Street, McGregor, MN.
