During Chicago’s period of growth in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, women played a major role in many historic events: they participated in the Underground Railroad, exhibited the first Modern Art paintings, created the juvenile justice system, and even foiled a plot to kill President Lincoln. This tour, presented by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, celebrates the achievements of women in Chicago history who are buried in Graceland (including Marion Mahony Griffin), remembering their influence on architecture, arts, education and more. Co-presented by Elmhurst History Museum and Elmhurst Public Library.
