Visitors will be treated to a breath-taking array of beautifully carved wood moldings, leaded glass windows, and fireplaces in elaborate tile, mosaic, and marble.
The Glessner and Clarke House Museums are also included on the tour as well as historic Second Presbyterian Church, with its important arts and crafts interior and collection of stained glass windows including nine by Tiffany and two by the William Morris Studios.
Highlights of the tour including a dramatic two-story stair hall richly panelled, a stunning mahogany-clad music room illuminated by a stained glass dome, an elaborately carved fireplace faced in onyx, intricate parquet floors, and much more!
Following the tour, attendees are invited to return to the coach house of Glessner House Museum for a reception and silent auction, featuring theatre tickets, Chicago memorabilia, collectibles, architectural fragments, and other items of interest.
