Graceland Cemetery is located at 4001 North Clark Street in Chicago, Illinois (Cook County). The coordinates are 41° 57' 26" N, 87° 39' 37" W.

Graceland Cemetery is large, and it is still active. There are many notable people buried here, and there are some very impressive monuments. I only took photos of a few of the interesting gravestones on my visit, and hope to return again to take even more. The cemetery is very well maintained.

Some believe Graceland Cemetery is haunted. Although there are several stories, one of the most well known is that of Inez Clark. Her parents had the statue on her monument designed from one of her photos. Today, people claim to see her ghost wandering around the cemetery, especially on rainy, stormy nights. One legends states that a night watchman who worked at the cemetery came across her grave one stormy night, only to find the glass box was empty. He never returned to the cemetery.
