I was on my own on July Fourth and looking for something patriotic to do. This was perfect. Rosehill is the final resting spot for many Civil War Union soldiers, officers and families. I enjoyed an elegant stroll led by a CAF guide named Ellen S. who was knowledgeable, personable, able to answer almost any question or could direct you... More

This is one of the most peaceful and beautiful cemeteries ever. It has a rich history of Chicago within its walls from the Civil War to it's artist and sculptors. I go here often as my family is resting here.

My wife likes to go to cemeteries and other places of worship/remembrance and I sometimes tag along. We went to Rosehill this last weekend and walked around the cemetery. The cemetery is a decent sized cemetery for being in Chicago proper. However, that is one thing you will always be aware of while in the cemetery, that you are in... More

This was an unexpected delight...sounds odd for a visit to a cemetery. We were out for a walk and decided to walk within Rosehill, entering off of Bowmanville Avenue. I mention that because, had we entered through the main gate off of Ravenswood Avenue, we might have learned that the cemetery provides two self-guided tour descriptions. The first tour maps...

If you like history, sculpture, beautiful old trees, and peaceful surroundings............this is the place. At the time it was built, 1859, Rosehill was well outside the city limits. The limestone gatehouse featured in the above photo may look familiar to you. It was designed by William W. Boyington, the same architect who designed the Chicago Water Tower and Pumping Station....

Be sure to make your first stop the Dignity Memorial Building to ask for a map -- this cemetery is *huge* and the map is very helpful. Call to see if the FREE tours of Rosehill Cemetery at 10am on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays each month are happening -- these are a great, guided way to tour this very... More

This cemetery is not to be missed for amazing architectural details. The Egyptian revival crypt of Darius Miller is worth viewing. Patina green doors and a large winged scarab over the door. The most incredible views are inside the mausoleum with stained glass windows in the roof letting in light. Old crypts with individual stained glass windows that are stunning.... More

Everyone who is anyone is buried there. Also really cool grave markers. When you leave there you should go to Mary's Burgers in Andersonville.
