Chicago Museums+Attractions: Graceland Cemetery
In Lakeview, the serene, lush grounds of Graceland Cemetery provide a heavenly setting for grandiose gravesites like the Greek columns of retail mogul and hotelier Potter Palmer (1826-1902) and Bertha Palmer (1849-1918); and the Louis Sullivan-designed tomb of Carrie Eliza Getty (1842-1890), wife of lumber tycoon Henry Harrison Getty.
