There are many celebrated Chicagoans who are buried in historic Graceland Cemetery at 4001 North Clark Street, at Irving Park Road, in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, north of Wrigley Field. Without a doubt, however, the gravesite of noted architect and city planner Daniel Burnham is located in the most beautiful setting in the cemetery. Burnham and his family are buried under natural glacial granite boulders on a small island near the north end of Lake Willomere, reachable by a permanent footbridge. Burnham (1846-1912), recognized as the "Father of City Planning," directed the World's Columbian Exposition in 1892 and 1893, designed famous buildings in New York City, Washington DC and Chicago, built Wacker Drive and lakefront parks in Chicago and, at the time of death, headed the largest architectural firm in the world, the model for global architectural businesses. When you tour Graceland, you will be impressed by Potter Palmer's Memorial, Martin Ryerson's Mausoleum, Louis Sullivan's Getty Mausoleum and Lorado Taft's Statue of Death sculpture. And you will undoubtedly seek out the gravesites of Marshall Field, Cyrus McCormick, Joseph Medill, boxing champion Jack Johnson, meatpacking magnate Phillip Armour and baseball Hall of Famer Ernie Banks. But you will dwell for more than a few minutes at Daniel Burnham's burial site.
