Evergreen Memorial Cemetery
Description
Evergreen Memorial Cemetery, founded in the early 1820's, is a historic cemetery nestled in the heart of Bloomington. The 87 acre cemetery begins with a simple entrance, winding avenues, towering trees and an elaborate mausoleum. Evergreen Memorial Cemetery is a wonderful example of preservation, culture and tradition in Central Illinois. It is the resting place of famous figures and ordinary people. People like former Vice President Adlai Stevenson, Revolutionary War soldier David Haggard and niece of L. Frank Baum, Dorothy Louise Gage, basis for the character Dorothy from his book The Wizard of Oz.

There are two sections dedicated to children, three areas dedicated to veterans. Today, Evergreen Memorial Cemetery captures the imagination of the visitor and may be swept away by the quality which one might call the essential spirit of the place.
