Renowned as the final resting place of many of Chicago’s famous architects–the cemetery is full of elaborate tombs and monuments. Notables interred here are Chicago’s movers and shakers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries: Daniel Burnham, Potter Palmer, Marshall Field, George Pullman and many others. Stroll through the peaceful, garden-like oasis with historian Al Walavich and uncover the enchanting stories of those laid to rest within the gates.
