Wacker Monument in Graceland Cemetery
Wacker Monument in Graceland Cemetery
TitleWacker Monument in Graceland Cemetery
DescriptionCaption: "Graceland.--Monument of Frederick and Catharine Wacker." From text: "Before the close of the year 1893 the number of the silent inhabitants of the necropolis Graceland will have reached 60, 000. This cemetery is justly famed as one of the finest among Chicago's cities of the dead, and occupies a similar rank here as does Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, Spring Grove in Cincinnati, Forest Hill or Mount Auburn in Boston. Among the 500 cemeteries in this country there is but a small number that can compare with Graceland in point of beauty of landscape and the splendor of its monuments."
