Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Designed by renowned architect George Washington Maher, this turn-of-the-century gem is a shining example of the midwest's "Prairie School" of building design. It's been lovingly preserved and maintains the majority of its original detailing.
  • The entire first floor and expansive wraparound porch are yours for the day, allowing you to structure your event however you choose. Guests will love mingling throughout the beautiful rooms, which are replete with period art and furnishings.
  • Two opulent upstairs suites are available for your day-of preparations, and the breathtaking stained glass windows in the upper landing make a fabulous backdrop for first-look photos or bridal portraits.


Oak Park Residents and non-profits receive a 15% discount Monday–Thursday.
