Join us for an historical and architectural walking tour of Lake Forest Cemetery led by popular docent, Tina Strauss. 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 tour will take place light rain or shine. Face masks and social distancing required.
