Grave Reminders Cemetery Walk

  • North Cemetery St. Charles, IL 60174 (map)

Join the St. Charles History Museum in Collaboration with the St. Charles Park District at North Cemetery. 

Immerse yourself in the local history of St. Charles. Walk North Cemetery visiting the gravesites of those who helped shape the unique character of our community. At each gravesite, guests will “encounter” a community figure and listen as they tell in short monologues about their lives, their joys, their sorrows, and their loves.

Tours depart approximately every 15 minutes from the hour where a guid will lead you through the cemetery.

While you wait or after your tour enjoy exploring the cemetery and try your hand at our scavenger hunt. Locate different symbols and discover their meaning.
