Considering the impact of these accomplishments on America and the world, the cemetery is a national asset and fully deserves its designation in the New York State and National Registers of Historic Places.

This journey through time and Buffalo's history culminates at the famous Blocher Memorial. The tour begins at the Delaware and Delavan gates of Forest Lawn and lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours.
