Chicago Haunts: Ghostlore of the Windy City

Graveyards of Chicago: The People, History, Art, and Lore of Cook County Cemeteries

Click here to buy the book!Ever wonder where Al Capone is buried? How about Clarence Darrow? Muddy Waters? Harry Caray? Or maybe Brady Bunch patriarch Robert Reed? And what really lies beneath home plate at Wrigley Field? Graveyards of Chicago answers these and other cryptic questions as it charts the lore and lure of Chicago's ubiquitous burial grounds.

Like the livelier neighborhoods that surround them, Chicago's cemeteries are often crowded, sometimes weary, ever-sophisticated, and full of secrets. They are home not only to thousands of individuals who fashioned the city's singular culture and character, but also to impressive displays of art and architecture, landscaping and limestone, egoism and ethnic pride, and the constant reminder that although physical life must end for us all, personal note—and notoriety—last forever.

Grab a shovel and tag along as Ursula Bielski, local historian and author of Chicago Haunts, and Matt Hucke, photographer and creator of, unearth the legends and legacies that mark Chicago's silent citizens—from larger-than-lifers and local heroes, to clerics and comedians, machine mayors and machine-gunners.

But unlike those other tourists, we won't be searching for priceless paintings, pioneering architecture, local heritage, or luscious views. We’re on the lookout for . . . g-g-g-g-ghosts!

Chicago's history is full of scary stories, terrible fires, hard times, and the toughest gangsters ever known. What's more, Chicagoans have always loved to tell of terrifying events that happened—and still happen—to ordinary people. Hitchhiking phantoms, mysterious handprints, perfectly preserved corpses: tales of these and other oddities are told every day in each of the city's neighborhoods, making Chicago's supernatural folklore some of the strangest in the world. But this folklore tells more than mere ghost stories; it tells a lot about the many kinds of people that have lived—and died—in this endlessly intriguing city.
