About Wyuka

For over 140 years, Wyuka Cemetery has played an integral part in the lives of Nebraskans. During that time, its grounds have been host to family gatherings of all kinds. Our visitors continue to tell us stories of their visits to Wyuka – be it for birthday celebrations, family reunions, or because they’re celebrating the lives of their loved ones who have passed away.

Wyuka Cemetery, a nationally recognized historic cemetery, has been a vital living piece of Lincoln’s history since its founding. With its rolling hills, shady trees, sparkling pond and spectacular plantings, Wyuka Cemetery is considered one of the most magnificent examples of landscape architecture and design in Nebraska. In addition, it is literally a museum without walls. It features statuary art and monumental architecture, historical tributes to Lincoln families, civil war veterans, and ordinary citizens.

Today, Wyuka is known to be the largest all-faith cemetery serving the Lincoln community. When a loved one passes on, a service of dignity and simplicity in a setting of great natural beauty is a wonderful way to say good-bye, and many see Wyuka as a peaceful and comforting place to visit. Throughout the cemetery are spacious sections to suit any preference, such as traditional ground burial, mausoleum, or personalized cremation choices. Wyuka provides a beautiful and peaceful setting for families and their chosen form of permanent and perpetual memorialization, and offers a wide range of choices for one’s final place of rest; throughout the years, over 52,000 individuals have selected Wyuka to be their cemetery of choice for burial.

Wyuka is a Lakota Indian word meaning “to rest.” Many visitors tell us that upon entering the grounds, a “feeling of calm” comes over them. You are invited to tour the 140-plus rolling acres of trees, shrubs and flower gardens that make Wyuka Cemetery one of the most beautiful places in our state.

Here at Wyuka, it is an honor to care and a privilege to serve. We’re Wyuka Cemetery, a place of rest.
