St. James at Sag Bridge

Oh, did I go traipsing around a cemetery I have long wanted to visit!

St. James at Sag Bridge in Lemont, Cook County, Illinois, is one of the oldest religious congregations in Illinois. This file is a wonderful history of the parish, founded in 1833, if you want to read more information. And with any old cemetery come the stories of hauntings, if you are so inclined.

Anyway, back to the adventure. I took over 100 photos, because the property was so engaging. Today's post is general photos of the church, cemetery, and grounds.

More to come...
