Why We Like This Place

• It’s a Chicago treasure. Located in the heart of the renowned Prairie Avenue Historic District, this lovely 1870 mansion overlooks fabulous views of the Chicago Women’s Park and Gardens, and is just 10 minutes from downtown Chicago.

• Garden ceremonies take place on the backyard lawn against a backdrop of tall trees, flowers and other greenery. Feel free to have your pet be the ring bearer!

• Indoors, the intimate event spaces offer a cozy, period charm: You’ll find high ceilings, an abundance of molding, and plenty of tall windows in the art gallery, parlor and dining room.
