Pierce Downer Burial Site
Linscott Ave & Grant St, Downers Grove, IL 60515

According to the History of DuPage County: DuPage Roots, the remains of the founder of Downers Grove, PierceMore Downer, and his wife, Lucy, who died within a day of each other in 1863, are on Linscott Avenue. They had to be buried on their farm because spring rains had caused St. Joseph Creek to flood, making the downtown inaccessible from the north.

There is a sign posted on the street designating the location of the burial site between 4516 and 4524 on Linscott. Just beyond the driveway in a garden cove is the final resting place of Pierce Downer and several family members.
