Graceland in Chicago
March 29, 2011
Graceland is the cemetery Erik Larson mentions in The Devil in the White City. Graceland is home to many architects and engineers – including Louis Sullivan, William Le Baron Jenney, Daniel Burnham, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe – along with other prominent figures in Chicago history. Located in the city, just north of Wrigley Field, it is a surprisingly peaceful resting place. My parents’ site (partly shaded by the branches of a tree, near flowering landscaped areas, and within sight of the pond) is particularly lovely.
