About St Paul's Lutheran Cemetery, Mt Prospect
In 1859, St Paul’s Lutheran Cemetery was established in Mt. Prospect. Where we bury or families are most influenced by the immediate areas and neighborhoods where they lived, or the church they attended. In the mid-1840s German Lutherans came to Chicago and became tradesmen and merchants. Many, if not most others began farming the land in outlying areas. Both groups would soon find the need for cemeteries.
