Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This 1920s Colonial-inspired gem is a treasured part of Oak Park's history and makes a dramatic first impression with its stately brick façade, soaring two-story columned portico, and elegant porte-cochère entry.
  • Inside you'll find a grand, light-filled upstairs ballroom with gleaming hardwood floors, rows of richly-draped windows, and full-sized stage with a restored 1928 Steinway piano.
  • Your rental fee helps maintain the integrity of this architectural jewel, as well as support the Nineteenth Century Club's 125-year mission of giving by funding its long-standing scholarship program.
