Anyone interested in the history of Chicago should visit. Many of the movers and shakers of the city are buried here, some in impressive strucures. Some of the famous are Potter Palmer, George Pullman and Ernie Bankss. There are free docent tours.

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

Graceland offers insight to Chicago's unique history through the lives and deaths of local entrepreneurs, celebrities and leaders. Tours such as the Chicago Architecture Foundation tour point out the intricacies of the cemetery as well as share the story of early Chicago.

This is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever visited. Lots of curious tombs and important people buried here. Lots of folklore and legends also, including the girl in the glass case who, allegedly, moves. It is a very tranquil place, peaceful and...More
