"Forest Lawn and Car Repair"

Lincoln Avenue is a long street that extends in an east/west direction through several cities in Orange County. At its western end, it begins at the 605 freeway in the Los Angeles County city of Hawaiian Gardens. It ends about 15 miles to the west in Anaheim Hills, where its name changes to East Nohl Ranch Rd after crossing the 55 freeway.

The section of the street between the San Gabriel River and Valley View Avenue in Cypress is the most unique part of the street. After passing over the concrete river bed, Lincoln passes the entrance to a large mobile home park on the left. On the right is Forest Lawn Memorial Park, a large cemetery that’s part of a Southern California chain. From Lincoln Avenue you can see a large fountain and imposing Southern-style mansion that is actually the mortuary. Forest Lawn encourages visitor to come and see the pieces of original art and art replicas that are located throughout the grounds. I’ve never done that, but I did attend one funeral there that was very beautifully done.

Continuing east, Lincoln Avenue gives way to a commercial district that has a small-town feel. One day as I was driving on Lincoln and needed some air in my tire I noticed that there are a large number of car repair businesses on Lincoln (like 3 or 4 in every block). I don’t know why this is, but if you need car work done in the Cypress area you should check out Lincoln Avenue.

The retail area at the intersection of Lincoln and Valley View has recently been renovated and now includes large updated shopping centers on each corner. The residential neighborhoods in the area of Lincoln Avenue are middle-class and well-maintained.
