Join Curator Patrick Leary and Director Kathy Hussey-Arntson on Saturday, June 13th, from 10:00-11:00 a.m. for highlights of St. Joseph Cemetery. Established in 1843, this is one of the oldest cemeteries in the Chicago Archdiocese, created a year or so before St. Joseph Church. In 2011, to celebrate the 165th anniversary of St. Joseph Church and its cemetery’s historical importance to the community and region, the Wilmette Historical Museum researched the cemetery's history, documenting both its monuments and their condition. On the walking tour, you will see 19th century grave markers and hear stories about early settler families and Civil War veterans who are buried there. The tour is free for members, $5 for non-members. Meet at the cemetery entrance at 1747 Lake Avenue.
