A Road Scholar program by Barbara Geiger
Graceland Cemetery is such a significant Midwestern landscape that it is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This slide presentation will offer a close look at THE cemetery for Gilded Age Chicago’s movers and shakers through historic and contemporary photos. Featuring a collection of architecturally important monuments and little-known stories of important Chicagoans, this virtual tour presents a thorough overview of nationally prominent landscape architect O.C. Simonds’s (1855-1931) beautifully designed and meticulously maintained pastoral setting at Graceland.
