Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Graceland Cemetery Overview

Sorry folks, Elvis is not buried here—but some other big names are. Recall any important historical figure from Chicago, and there's a good chance that they'll be resting here. Some of the more famous residents of Graceland Cemetery include the architect Daniel Burnham, heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson, and railcar tycoon George Pullman, making the cemetery a surprisingly popular tourist destination. Graceland Cemetery is Chicago's most famous cemetery, as well as being one of the city's most attractively landscaped settings. The expansive lawn and vast assortment of headstones are shaded with some of the city's largest and most spectacular oak, elm, and maple trees.
