Description: 
In celebration of Halloween, John Lynn shares his exploration of hundreds of Illinois cemeteries to find interesting graves, headstones, intriguing lives and deaths in this "underground" presentation.

Dying to know where the famous people of the state are buried or the creepiest tombstones lie. John Lynn has been there to tell their tales. It's an opportunity for mortals to not only whistle past the graveyard, but to pause and enjoy the oddities of life and death.


Historian John Lynn (still living) of Peoria has photographed all 2400 Illinois cities, villages, and towns. He has also hiked, biked, and canoed enough historic and scenic trails, roads, and rivers in North America and Britain to circle the globe. He has now shared his experiences and discoveries with over 4000 audiences.
