Join the Elgin History Museum to learn more about the Elgin State Hospital and why this cemetery is located here. It is the final resting place for 974 individuals for whom other burial arrangements could not be made. Elgin historian Bill Briska will be your guide to discover this little-known site and some stories it has to tell.
Group will meet at the Highlands Golf Course in the east parking lot, then drive over near the soccer fields to park and enter the cemetery.
