WE’RE OPEN! Starting July 3, CAFC River Cruise, CAC Galleries, our Box Office and Design Store join our Walking Tours as open to the public.

As we explore a venerable section of Graceland Cemetery, we’ll discuss the meanings of and changes to gravestone symbols and shapes, from Victorian times to the present day. We’ll see a variety of obelisks and mausoleums, as well as distinctive memorials for a fallen fireman, a blind man and a little girl, as well as those of several famous Chicagoans. We’ll also encounter ledger and cradle grave markers and other noteworthy resting places.
