The Street of Dreams: Founding Families and Early Architects of Keystone Avenue. "Whoo Whoo! - Next stop River Forest!"

Meet us at the River Forest Train Station for a stroll through River Forest history. Learn about the oldest commercial building, the architect of the Methodist Church, the “power couple” who helped bring the Columbian Exposition to Chicago, and much more as we take a sidewalk tour down the stretch of Keystone Avenue known as “The Street of Dreams.”

Our annual housewalk this year featured interior tours of many homes in this area of River Forest. Now, learn more about the history and development of this beautiful neighborhood!

This tour will start in front of the River Forest Train Station (Thatcher Ave. just south of Lake St.) promptly at 10am and will last approximately 90 minutes. The tour is entirely outdoors, so facemasks are optional.
