The charm and beauty of the Midwest are at their best at the beautiful Mount Emblem Cemetery and Mausoleum in Elmhurst, Illinois. This cemetery is a sanctuary in the heart of this bustling suburb of Chicago. Established in 1925, the meticulously maintained grounds feature mature trees and fragrant lilac bushes that infuse the air with a delightful scent each spring.
The Mount Emblem Cemetery is perhaps best known for the stirring landmark that sits in the center of the park. A structure known as The Old Dutch Mill was built in 1865 as an operating mill. The windmill, built in the traditional Dutch smock style, can be seen for miles away. The mill, built prior to the land being used as a cemetery, was one of the first mills of its kind to be built in the area and has been lovingly preserved.
In addition to this stunning masterpiece of engineering, Mount Emblem is graced with lovely gardens and a beautiful Tudor Gothic style administration building. Marble statuary such as the sculptures depicting Hope, Faith and Charity are scattered throughout the emerald green lawns, providing quiet places for prayer and contemplation. The picturesque Lake Emblem is yet another unforgettable feature of the cemetery.
Located a short distance from the city of Chicago, Mount Emblem Cemetery and Mausoleum offers guests an experienced and caring staff that will see to every need during a difficult time.
