Graceland Cemetery

Established in 1860 and designed by landscape architects, O. C. Simonds and H.W.S. Cleveland, Graceland is truly a haven in the city. Chicago's most famous people are buried here. The monuments and buildings designed by Sullivan, Holibird & Roche and McKim, Mead and White, among others are still viewed as primary examples of their work. This masterpiece of Midwest landscape architecture was awarded a medal of excellence at the Paris Exposition of 1900. Graceland was also honored by acceptance on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. Landscape historians regard Graceland Cemetery as "one of the most remarkable park-like cemeteries of the Western world."
