Showmen’s Rest
landmark

Showmen’s Rest in Forest Park is a 750 plot section of Woodlawn Cemetery mostly for circus performers owned by the Showmen’s League of America. Statues of five elephants surround the Showmen’s Rest section of the cemetery. The elephants each have a foot raised with a ball underneath, and the trunks lowered in mourning.
