  • If you have a chance, go while there is a tour or guide present to tell you about all the fascinating details of the Chapel. The Chapel is rich with history, and significant art from the Tiffany Co.
  • Beautiful stained glass cathedral in Lakeview Cemetery. Pro tip: Eliot Ness is buried just a 1 minute walk away! Can you find him?
  • If you are visiting the cemetery, don't miss this gem. Entirely designed and executed by Tiffany in the early 1900s. The stained glass window is one of the only ones ever made by the company and it is almost literally breathtaking as you walk through the door and meet it full on. A sharp contrast with the dirty and dreary Garfield monument.
  • Would be worth a trip to the cemetery just to see this chapel. Truly one of the most beautiful structures in the city
