Ridgeland Ramble: A Walking Tour of This Distinctive Oak Park Neighborhood
Two Chicago Symphony Orchestra Members from Oak Park Share Their Stories
Have you ever listened to a symphony orchestra and wanted to know more about the musicians? Why did they choose the instruments that they are playing? How did they become members? How many hours a day do they practice? What are their lives like outside of the orchestra?
Join us for The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest's 31st Annual "Tale of the Tombstones" Cemetery Walk. Check back soon for more information about this year's theme.
Tours will depart from the cemetery's main gate in 10-minute intervals between 12 and 1:30 p.m., and the tour will last approximately 1.5 hours.
Once the home of the eponymous Wallace Evans Game Farm, history here is shared by Native Americans, early settlers, a 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps camp, and now generations of hikers, bicyclists and fans of nature. We’ll walk past a marsh and through woods along the Des Plaines River that are home to diverse flora and fauna.
