This cemetery has more victims of the Eastland disaster than any place in Chicago, and has one of the finest collections of funerary art in the country. The gatehouse, which contains the restrooms, has landmark status, and wouldn't be a bad place for a wedding...More

The cemetery is gorgeous. One of the staff at the cemetery should be avoided at all costs. Quite frankly, she is the meanest person I have ever run across at a cemetery. If you have to go to the cemetery office, head for the far...More

This cemetery was supposedly founded back in the 1870's because an Irish priest refused to bury some Czechs. It is beautiful and unusual, with a gate resembling a Bohemian castle. Highlight are the mausoleum of Chicago mayor Anton Cermak, killed by a bullet intended for...More
