Officially started training for my unofficial birthday Half Marathon Escapade! The route took me to an elaborately beautiful cemetery in the edge of north Chicago & south Evanston. Maybe it's the Mormon in me that loves genealogy & family history, or maybe it's because my dad passed away while I was young & I always visited cemeteries growing up, but I tend to find such a sense of peace & immense respect for all of the markers for the lives that have passed. This cemetery was stunning with it's monuments & tributes that date back nearly 200 years... So beautiful. 💛 . . . #seenonmyrun#chicagolove#monument#mormonheritage#chicagohistory#marathontraining#halfmarathonescapade
This 1895 Queen Anne in the 2200 block of Orrington once housed a true Evanston VIP: Catherine McCullough, who led in the suffrage movement and was the first woman to be elected to a US judicial office. These walls & floors house principle & brave steps.
The Diamond and Doran Mysteries are set in Chicago’s Golden Age between 1880 and 1900 and no one exemplified this marvellous time of social and architectural development like Daniel Burnham and John Root. In 1885 this pair of prolific architects was commissioned to design a building for the Central Safety Deposit Company. This symbol of success and authority was to be located at the southeast corner of LaSalle and Adams Streets. The Rookery features in several D&D mysteries.
