Back for another Halloween season by popular demand! Did you know that cemeteries and skeletons played a major role in the history of Chicago?  Over the last 100 years, digging in almost any area of Lincoln Park, one of the city’s original burial grounds, has uncovered skeletons and remains from the graveyards that used to inhabit the neighborhood.  Join historian Sally Sexton Kalmbach on a walking excursion and learn about its macabre history as a vast, windswept burial site.

This 90 minute tour will run rain or shine.
