Spooky Walking Tour
  • Back for another Halloween season by popular demand! Today, Lincoln Park is known as one of the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods, but in the mid-19th century the area served as one of Chicago’s original cemeteries. Over the last 100 years, bones from the previous gravesites have routinely been uncovered. Historian Sally Sexton Kalmbach will lead the way as you discover the area’s macabre history as a vast, windswept burial site.
