About Graceland: As the sign at the entrance of this large Victorian era cemetery on Chicago's north side says, Graceland is the resting place of "those who have writ the story of Chicago, large and small." Deservedly certified as an arboretum, it is home to many magnificent native trees, as well as local wildlife, and is reputed to contain the oldest extant structure in the city.
