The Chicago Tribune, July 25, 1863, reports that the Congregation and Sunday school of "St. John's Church (Episcopal)" will picnic at Haas' Park just outside the city limits and while there will play "base ball."

The park was where the modern Forest Home Cemetery is, 863 S. Des Plaines Ave., Forest Park (then, Harlem).
