About Our


For over 140 years Wyuka Cemetery has played an integral part of the lives Nebraskans. During that time its grounds have been host to family gatherings of all kinds. To this day, our visitors tell us stories of their visits to Wyuka for celebrating birthdays and family reunions and celebrating the lives of their loved ones in death.

Wyuka is a Lakota Indian word meaning “to rest” and upon entering the grounds many tell us 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 quietly beautiful places in our state.

All About

Wyuka Cemetery

Wyuka Cemetery, a nationally recognized historic cemetery, has been a vital living part 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 featuring 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. Throughout the cemetery are spacious sections to suit any preference from traditional ground burial, to mausoleum or personalized cremation choices.

Wyuka provides a beautiful and peaceful setting for families and their chosen form of permanent and perpetual memorialization. Wyuka offers a wide range of choices for one’s final place of rest. Since it’s establishment, over more people have selected Wyuka to be their cemetery of choice with over 52,000 burials.

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. Many think of Wyuka as a peaceful and comforting place to visit, where our ceilings reach a little higher.

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