Town of Maine Cemetery
Park Ridge, IL , 60068


The Park Ridge Historical Society is pleased to announce the popular “Spirits of Old Park Ridge” tour on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 10:00am to 2:00pm. (last tour at 1:30pm) at the Town of Maine Cemetery located at Touhy Ave. and Dee Road in Park Ridge.

Community members of all ages are invited to learn more about the life and times of the men and women who helped shape the development of Park Ridge, including early settlers, former mayors and businessmen, soldiers, teachers and even a professional baseball player.

Local actors will portray the "Spirits", bringing to life their individual stories and contributions to Park Ridge history. Tour guides will accompany the groups to the various gravesites, providing additional history and anecdotes about some of the residents now laid to rest in this historical cemetery.

The cast of "Spirits" for 2019 includes Milton Myers, Civil War soldier; Alexander Harley, first Music Director at Maine High School; Robert Hale, professional baseball player and District 64 administrator; and Albert Buchheit, first Mayor of Park Ridge.

 Tours will leave every 15-30 minutes from the Cemetery gatehouse, located just inside the main gate off of Touhy Avenue. Parking is available along Rose Avenue to the east, or along the lanes in the Cemetery. There is a suggested admission of $10.00 for adults.
