The Charnley-Persky House Museum Foundation announces the launch of a virtual tour of the National Historic Landmark Charnley-Persky House (1891–1892), designed by Louis Sullivan with assistance from Frank Lloyd Wright. Located in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, the Charnley-Persky House today serves as the international headquarters of the Society of Architectural Historians.

The virtual tour allows users to explore the interior of the entire house including the third floor that is not open for in-person tours. In addition, the virtual tour includes text that provides information on the architectural features of the house.

“Through the virtual tour, we are able to share the Charnley-Persky House with people from all over the world who may not be able to visit and tour the house in person,” said Ben Thomas, executive director of the Charnley-Perksy House Museum Foundation and SAH.

The virtual tour was made possible through a gift from Charnley-Persky House board member and docent Laurie Peterson.

“We are grateful for Laurie Peterson’s support and look forward to reaching new audiences who wish to learn more about the Charnley-Persky House, its architecture, and its history,” said Thomas.
