Couch Mausoleum, Chicago

Couch Mausoleum - Chicago, Illinois

+1 312 222 1900
Neighborhood: Lincoln Park

Before Lincoln Park was a park, it was one of the city's largest cemeteries. Most of the graves were relocated, although construction crews occasionally turn up a body or two. One family refused to move its patron, the tailor Ira Couch, from the grounds. They won a lawsuit against the city and Ira Couch's resting place remained unmoved. As part of the lawsuit, no one is allowed inside the mausoleum. Whether or not the Couch inside is a mystery, that has puzzled generations of Chicagoans. Stop by when you visit the Chicago Historical Society.
