Resurrection Catholic Cemetery
Resurrection Catholic Cemetery founded in 1904 is located in the
near southwest Chicago suburb of Justice. It has a very good old section with many nice
angel statues. Resurrection is probably most known for it's supposedly haunted nature made
famous by self appointed ghost hunters like Richard Crowe and talk radio hosts like Eddie
Schwartz and those who follow in their footsteps today. Resurrection cemetery is
claimed to be the home of Resurrection Mary, the famous 'Dancing Ghost', and a supposedly
Resurrection Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleums
Please note. While ghost stories and urban legends are part of growing up. Never fail to remember to treat all cemeteries with the respect an eternal resting place surely deserves. Grave desecration and drunken midnight visits are not only stupid, they are against the law. The Justice police department does not look kindly upon either as a form of late night entertainment.

The photo to the left is of the main entrance of the cemetery. Part of the 'Resurrection Mary' legends is that she left her hand prints burned into the iron bars of the gate. I seen actually seen these. The bars were later removed by cemetery officials because too many people were stopping to view them.
