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 halls 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. Get a feel of how this grand Mansion came to be and understand its relationship to the history of Oak Park. Each guest receives two drink tickets and can enjoy appetizers during the event. 40% of your ticket price will go to support Oak Park River Forest Museum.

Don't miss your opportunity to hear the inside story of this 12,000-square-foot 1913 masterpiece by noted architect and Oak Park resident Charles E. White, Jr.

Tickets are $40, and registration is required for this event. Click here to register.
