Waldheim Jewish Cemetery, Forest Park, Cook County since 1873

German Waldheim Cemetery, previously known as Waldheim Cemetery, and currently named Forest Home Cemetery is located at 863 Des Plaines Ave. in Forest Park, a suburb of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois. It was originally founded in 1873 as a non-religion specific cemetery, where Freemasons, Roma, and German-speaking immigrants to Chicago could be buried without regard for religious affiliation. In 1969, it merged with the adjacent Forest Home Cemetery, founded at the same time, with the combined cemetery being called Forest Home (Waldheim means forest home in German).
