Potter Palmer, 1826 - 1902 & Bertha Palmer, 1849 - 1918
The grand Greek temple with the twin sarcophagi gives a clue to the lavish lifestyle of its occupants. Potter Palmer pioneered customer satisfaction in his dry goods store, with money-back guarantees, merchandise on approval, and attractive store displays. He sold his successful business to Marshall Field and Levi Leiter, and became successful in real estate. (You’ve heard of the Palmer House, no doubt.)
Rumor has it that when you stand in the momument iteself, you get a deep feeling of dread and doom.
