Have you ever wondered what’s across the bridge in Forest Home Cemetery? If so, join Oak Park River Forest Museum docents for a walking tour to learn more about the people, organizations and stories found west of the Des Plaines River. Find out about the Bill Posters Union and the Cigar Makers International Union, veterans’ and fraternal groups, ethnic areas, the founder of the world’s first blood bank, a well-known radio personality, and more. NOTE—this is a walking tour only, not a character tour like our October Cemetery Walk.
Our summer tours meet inside the First Avenue gate of the cemetery at 1 p.m. and will last approximately 90 minutes. Masks are required for those who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine. For those vaccinated, masks will not be required during the outside tour. Please bring your own water if needed. No refunds will be given for reservations cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the event.
