Members & guests–$30 for a 2 hour docent-led tour (click her to register), optional self-hosted lunch to follow. Advance registration required. The day before the event, a confirmation email with additional details will be sent to registered attendees.

Graceland Cemetery is a remarkable landmark in Chicago. Notables interred here, famous and infamous, were Chicago’s movers and shakers over the past 150 years, while their monuments have been designed by renowned sculptors. For two hours, we’ll stroll the winding paths, enjoy beautiful fall foliage and hear fascinating stories about the cemetery residents from Chicago Architecture Center docents.

Afterwards we will congregate at Uncommon Ground (3800 N Clark St), for a self-hosted lunch and conversation. Proof of vaccination (showing a photo of your immunization record) is required to remain maskless inside the restaurant.

  • Pre-registration required.

  • Unvaccinated and immunocompromised individuals should wear a mask at all times.
  • Proof of vaccination required to attend self-hosted lunch.
