William “Bill” Mueller Memorial Gazebo to be constructed in October


After nearly two years of planning, the William “Bill” Mueller Memorial Ga- zebo is set to be constructed this fall. The gazebo will serve as a tribute to Mueller, Village President of Lombard for more than 18 years and longtime community advocate.


The gazebo, which will be white with a pagoda roof, will be located be- hind the Victorian Cottage Museum on the Lombard Historical Society proper- ty at 23 W. Maple. The gazebo, like the other two properties on the site, will be owned and maintained by the Village of Lombard.


The memorial will also feature an on-site plaque dedication to Mueller and his time spent as a fi gurehead in the Lombard community. According to Public Works Director Carl Goldsmith, construction of the ga- zebo will begin the fi rst week in Octo-


ber and is expected to take only a few working days. Following the construc- tion of the structure, site landscaping and restoration will occur.


“Bill had so much Pride in Lombard – and this gazebo will be a wonderful gathering place for the community,” said Eileen Mueller. “It means such a great deal to us to have his memory kept alive here. We are so, so grate- ful.”


Marymae Meyer, Lombard resident and one of the leads on the Mueller Memorial, said the idea behind the gazebo was to memorialize a man who chose to dedicate much of his life to the Lombard community. “We could see people coming to the gazebo for events, getting married here, coming to meditate and refl ect,” Meyer said.
