LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS OF CHICAGO
 

Even Robin Leach would be impressed by the elegant lifestyles that early Chicagoans of means enjoyed. Spend an exciting day exploring where they lived, worked, and played.  

 

TOUR!

A North Side Mansion. Tour a once-suburban mansion on the city's North Side. Built on the outskirts, today very much in the city's center, this 30-room estate features lovely grounds and a palatial home, with - of course - a third floor ballroom.

 

STOP!

At A Magnificent Church created by the privileged class of the 1870s. Restored to its original decoration of the Arts and Crafts movement, it is maintained today for all to share.
