A two-hour tour of the Graceland Cemetery and Arboretum gave a group of ghost hunters and history buffs the chance to learn about some of Chicago’s most famous figures, while getting their dose of Halloween fright. Weaving through the graves at Graceland under colorful fall foliage on Tuesday, Albert Walavich led a Chicago History Museum tour of the grounds, where tombstones date back to the early 1800s. Built in 1860, the Uptown cemetery is the final resting place of some of Chicago’s most prominent families, well-known architects and beloved sports figures.
