During this year’s event, heroes of Warrenville and the history of their families will be highlighted, including those who helped found the Warrenville Fire District, which celebrated its 75th Anniversary this year, and Warrenville veterans from the War of 1812, the Civil War and World War I.

Cemetery tours begin at the Warrenville Cemetery, located on the north side of Warrenville road between Curtis and Warren, Warrenville, Illinois. Luminaries will light the way to lantern-lit gravesites where costumed interpreters will tell the stories of Warrenville citizens who lived 150 years ago in 1864, during the long second year of the American Civil War. Tour admission is free but donations will be accepted and are appreciated. All donations benefit the Warrenville Historical Society. Parking is available at Trinity Lutheran Church located at the N/W corner of Curtis and Warrenville Rds. Refreshments will be served at Trinity Lutheran Church after the tours.
