Did you know St. Paul United Church of Christ and Immanuel Lutheran Church are the proprietors of a cemetery? The two churches operate Union Cemetery on Greeley Street, two blocks south of Palatine Road. Paddock School borders the cemetery on two sides.

Union Cemetery dates back to the 1880’s. On July 20, 1881, St. Paul United Church of Christ received title to the south half of the cemetery. Twelve years later, December 5, 1893, Immanuel Lutheran received title to the North half. Many of Palatine’s early settlers and well-known citizens are buried at Union Cemetery. The condition of the cemetery deteriorated for a number of years, but in 1981, the Palatine Southside Cemetery Association was formed. The Association assumed responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the cemetery.

If you are interested in burial plot information at this historic cemetery, please contact Immanuel Lutheran Church at 847-359-1549 or  St. Paul United Church of Christ @ 847-358-0399.
