Tales Our Houses Tell Housewalk

May 5, 2019 - 1:00pm

Looking forward to spring weather? Join us for our Annual Housewalk Tales Our Houses Tell in River Forest on Sunday, May 5 from 1 to 5 p.m.

Located in the northwest corner of River Forest, this year's housewalk  will share the stories of six beautiful homes built on land once known as the old Longfield Farm and Keeney subdivision. We will tell the tales of how families, architects, and builders transformed "this wild rose prairie land," as it was called in the 1922 Oak Leaves, into a "pioneer development...Out where the handclasps are a little stronger [and] the smile dwells a little longer". 

Advanced tickets for this event are $30 or $25 for Historical Society members. Tickets purchased on the day of the event are $35. Please pick up your tickets on the day of the walk at Willard School, 1250 Ashland Avenue in River Forest.
