Burials in Lakeview Cemetery began in 1913 at about the same time when Shaw Hospital was built. The hospital housed people who were sick with mental illnesses and tuberculosis. When these patients died, there was no budget to bury them properly so they were buried in what is called the Potter’s Field. These patients were buried without names. All they had was a simple cross made from cast-iron. Potter’s Field is located just next to the Lakeview Cemetery. Lakeview Cemetery is surrounded by forests on all sides.
