Our stroll through southeast Oak Park's Gunderson Historic District will, of course, tell the story of how the Gunderson Brothers developed and promoted this neighborhood, but it will also include lesser-known stories, like the house once named the Oak Park Academy of Fine Arts, the controversial temporary homes built to ease the post-World War II housing crisis, why this neighborhood was once called “Fertile Acres,” and more.
This tour will start and end at the Longfellow Park Pavilion and will last approximately 90 minutes. Tickets are $10 or $8 for members. Group tours on other dates may be booked by special arrangement. Contact the Museum for more information.
