Rosehill Cemetery walking tour

Caroline O. Shickle

I’m sure the Rosehill Cemetery walking tour is on plenty of “things to do for Halloween” lists but it really wasn’t creepy at all. In fact, it was a nice walk on a crisp fall morning, with a bit of Chicago history thrown in.

The second and fourth Saturdays of the month you can take a free two-hour walking tour around Chicago’s largest cemetery, starting at 10 am from the gates at 5800 N Ravenswood Ave. On October 27 it will be a little different as they’ll be having an open house from 10 am to 4 pm at their newly renovated Community Mausoleum. Built in 1914, it’s the resting place of many famous Chicagoans — like both Richard Warren Sears and A. Montgomery Ward.
