A couple of weeks ago I found myself in the neighborhood of Rosehill cemetery. Since I had my camera, I just had to do an impromptu stomp thru this largest mausoleum in Chicago. In 1914 construction began on this massive mall of death. It houses one of the largest collections of TIffany glass anywhere and has some wonderful haunting history attached to it. Notabale Chicagoans John G. Shed, Aaron Montgomery Ward, Richard Warren Sears, Jack Brickhouse et all are buried here.
Part 1 of this stomp starts in a dark, black corner of the crypt's basement which brings up the subject of facing your fears. Some very interesting glass windows are illuminated in this dark crypt. I filmed it this way for a reason...it's only dark for a minute or two before the halls are very visible. Parts II and III follow. While in the mausoleum I noticed that the camera batteries were drained very quickly or I would have filmed at least three more parts. Happy Halloween: Enjoy!
