The Ravenswood Avenue entrance is an architectural treasure recognized as a Chicago Landmark. Stop by the cemetery office and pick up a map highlighting some of the amazing people who called Chicago home and who influenced the nation. Some of the monuments are simply works of art.

I was trying to prepare for this walk around the cemetery a day before but I couldn't find any decent map of it posted on line. And later when I went to the administrative building at the cemetery I learned that they don't have any brochures for a self walking tour or neither any decent map with notables noted on... More

Yes...Rosehill is easily the second best cemetery in Chicago if you are speaking of historical and odd sites. Many of Chicago's shakers and movers from the past lie here. There is also the original Fire fighters memorial, and Civil War dead. As an extra bonus the southwest corner of the propery is now a nature preserve with nice walking paths.... More

After visiting historic Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia, and Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., my wife and I became fascinated with visiting famous cemeteries...such as St. Michael's in Charleston, South Carolina, Mount Moriah in Deadwood, South Dakota, the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific i Honolulu, Boothill in Tombstone, Arizona, Oak Ridge in Springfield,... More

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
