Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery

There is no such thing as ghosts. But maybe there is! (There isn’t.) Chicago’s cemeteries, from Graceland to Acacia, are almost across-the-board beautiful and often enchanting, but Bachelor’s Grove, located south near Midlothian, is considered one of the most haunted cemeteries in the country, with a vast history of apparition sightings and ghostly photography. It’s rumored that Al Capone and his henchman used the cemetery’s adjacent pond to dispose of some of the clan’s dirty work, and the graves herein date back to the 1840s. Just don’t try to sneak in late at night, as you might be apprehended by the police for trespassing, have to return to Midlothian for a court date and be embarrassed in front of a judge for getting caught while “ghost-hunting.” Just sayin’.
