Cemetery tour

Graceland Cemetery - Beautiful and serene, Graceland Cemetery is a treasured oasis in the center of our bustling city. Notables interred here are Chicago's movers and shakers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries: Daniel Burnham, Potter Palmer, Charles Wacker, George Pullman and many others. Their monuments were designed by the famous sculptors of the era, Daniel Chester French, Loredo Taft and architect Louis Sullivan. For two hours we stroll the winding paths, admire the scenery and recount fascinating stories of our famed, and not so famed, cemetery residents.
PRICE: Adults- $15, Members- Free
DURATION: 2 hours 
MEET: Inside cemetery entrance, northeast corner of Clark Street and Irving Park Road (1300W, 4000N)

    Cold and wet day spent in a very interesting place. Lots of Chicago history tales are told here. Boots and a winter coat were required, however I wore neither!!!

    Hope my husband doesn't have to work this day so we both can go; if not, it will be just me.
