TitleEntrance to Waldheim Cemetery
DescriptionFrom text: "Situated in the town of Harlem, on the Desplaines River, and about nine miles from the city, is a German cemetery of exceptional beauty in its general aspect as well as in the tasteful and pleasing manner Like most of the other large cemeteries, Waldheim is open to all, and makes no distinction between the believer or unbeliever, between Christian, Jew or Heathen. The park-like grounds contain 80 acres of well drained land, about half of which is still covered with a dense wood of healthy oak trees, whose days however are numbered."
