Beyond the graves: A history of Wheaton Cemetery
WHEATON – In the midst of the often eerie Halloween season, the Wheaton Cemetery is known not for its spookiness, but for its tranquility.
“Some other cemeteries look like a sod farm – a grave marker down at the edge of the grass,” said Keith Carlson, who is the president of the Wheaton Cemetery Association Board of Directors. “More and more, cemeteries are sterile-looking. We have a more natural setting due to its age.”
Wheaton residents and members of surrounding communities have been buried at the cemetery, 1209 S. Warrenville Road, for more than a century. Large 150-year-old trees punctuate the grass between the gravestones.
