Audio Commentary
These audio recordings were made to be downloaded and then listened to, at the site of each historical marker installed in Lincoln Park as part of this project. The recordings provide commentary about each signpost marker's location. If played continuously, the audio accompanies a one-hour tour of the early cemetery grounds on Chicago's lakeshore.
