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 out where Civil War notables are buried within the cemetery. The second tour includes a detailed map of the Chicago notables who are buried here....several Chicago mayors, captains of industries, etc.
Even without the maps. we had the opportunity to discover many markers for the historical figures buried there. We'll have to go back and do the self-guided tours to see what we missed.
While one might not think of bringing kids to a cemetery, it's a quite spot where parents don't have to worry about a lot of traffic. For children in grade school, have them try to find the oldest birth year on a tombstone or some other date related game to keep them occupied while you stroll the grounds.
One could easily walk 2-3 miles inside the walls of Rosehill.
