Join us for a historical and architectural walking tour of Lake Forest Cemetery led by popular docent Tina Strauss and a colleague. 

The cemetery, on 25 acres of idyllic scenery, was established in 1882. It is the final resting place for many who have left their mark on the social and civic fabric of the community. Listed on the National Register, Lake Forest Cemetery is filled with monuments ranging from the traditional and classical to the contemporary and bold.

The tours will take place rain or shine and will depart from the Historical Society. Note: both tours are now sold out. Please call 847.234.5353 with any questions. Advance reservations are required.
