I was worried that visiting here would be macabre or existentially troubling, but it was really peaceful and I had a great time exploring the cemetery. I visited during the winter, which was nice, but the wind really whips through the grounds so I'd aim...More

I visit here regularly to get away from the noise and chaos of the city. It is a great place for walkers and many use the cemetery as a walking trail. For Taphophiles, this cemetery ranks with Highgate in London or Pere Lachaise in Paris...More

Anybody, who was anybody, in 19th century Chicago was buried here. Spectacular mortuary; truly an outdoor museum. A very solid multi-mile walk. But if you are completely unguided, it will be confusing. So make sure to stop at cemetery office, by entrance, for a free...More
