OPRF Museum has teamed up with the staff of Cheney Mansion, owned by the Park District of Oak Park, for a fun night of wine, hors d'oeuvres, and exploring the hall and grounds of this Oak Park Landmark.


Maybe you have been there for a wedding or a meeting but never really looked around? Or maybe you mistakenly think the building has something to do with Dole pineapples or Frank Lloyd Wright's girlfriend? Costumed actors, displays of historical artifacts and photos, and knowledgeable docents will set the record straight.
