Our hearts and thoughts are inclined to friends and family who recently gathered at the Bohemian National Cemetary for a centennial remembrance of those who lost their lives during the SS Eastland Disaster. Elements Architectural Group considers it an honor to have helped realize the vision of Bohemian National Cemetary's memorial.

"Just days before the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Eastland steamship in the Chicago River, a disaster that claimed the lives of 844 people, descendants of the victims gathered Sunday to dedicate what’s believed to the first-ever major memorial in their relatives’ honor."
