Rambling Through Ridgeland

A Walking Tour of this Distinctive Oak Park Neighborhood

Join Museum guides for a walking tour along Lake Street and surrounding blocks and learn about the history, buildings, activities, and people of this east side neighborhood. Along the way you will learn about Oak Park's largest employer in 1900, the West Suburban Jewish Community Center, the boy who started a successful pheasant farm in his Harvey Avenue yard, and much more.

Tours depart from the Oak Park River Forest Museum at 2:00 p.m. and will last approximately an hour and forty-five minutes. Tickets are $10 or $8 for members. Reservations are suggested but not required. Group tours on other dates may be booked by special arrangement. Contact the Museum for more information.

Tickets may be purchased at the museum on the day of the walk, but credit cards will not be accepted that day.
