Joseph Carabelli’s monument hardly seems sufficient for him. The monuments of Lake View Cemetery from the late 19th and early 20th century were the work of immigrant stone cutters from Italy, who settled just outside one corner of the cemetery and created the neighborhood we still know as Little Italy. Joseph Carabelli’s monuments are among the largest in the cemetery, including the Garfield Memorial, the monument for John Hay, and the Rockefeller monument. The monument company that bears his name is still in business.
