Historical Walking Tours

Lakeside and the Libertyville Historical Society joined to introduce guided cemetry walking tours in the fall of 2022. Community response has been excellent and we plan to continue these tours each fall.   You can view each brochure by clicking on a title below.  You can also use the map in each brochure for self-guided tours.

Many thanks again to Lakeside volunteers and those from our co-host, the Libertyville Historical Society, for their hours of research, logistical support, and providing guides for the guided tours.
