It is the oldest and largest cemetery in Chicago and is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places.Some notables buried here include: John D. Hertz who besides renting cars was the founder of the Yellow Cab Co; Charles M. Schwab of US Steel; Oscar Mayer, of the wiener business; the 30th US Vice President, Charles G. Dawes; Richard Warren Sears of Sears & Roebuck; Puppeteer Burr Tillstrom of Kukla, Fran and Ollie; Montgomery Ward of the catalogue/stores of the same name; Frances Willard, temperance leader/suffragist...to say nothing of the several former Chicago mayors.
I know they offer tours throughout the year and special "Haunted Tours" on Halloween. According to the internet buzz this seems to be one of the most active cemeteries for ghost activities.
