Cemetery Walk

September 18, 2021, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Darien Historical Society and St. John Lutheran Church will co-sponsor a guided tour of the St. John Lutheran Church Cemetery at 67th Street & Clarendon Hills Road. Select gravesites of area residents from past generations will be visited. Docents in period dress will give first person narratives about the life and contributions of these early settlers including insight into local history. To acknowledge the nine Civil War veterans buried in the cemetery, there will be Civil Way re-enactment and memorabilia from that conflict on display. A bake sale will also be held. The cemetery was established in 1859 on three acres of prairie.  The cemetery still contains original, untilled land and is a registered Illinois National Heritage Landmark. There is no charge for this outdoor family-friendly event.
