If I'm not mistaken, I think this cemetery is kept locked. I seem to remember reading something about that a while ago. Maybe it is just a matter of contacting someone to open the gates or being there at a certain time. I saw the sign stating the cemetery hours in the cemetery description section of Find A Grave, but I think that may be an old sign. The neighborhood isn't as safe as it used to be and they may have had trouble. I've passed by it on numerous occasions, and it looks really interesting. It is adjacent to Jewish Graceland Cemetery which unfortunately has not been cared for in a very long time. Very overgrown and neglected. These two cemeteries are across the street from Graceland Cemetery, one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the city of Chicago. I don't know why Jewish Graceland isn't taken care of.
