Description: 

Because of inclement weather, the tour that was scheduled for May 15 has been postponed until Saturday, May 22 at 2pm. 

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. Space for this tour is limited, and face masks will be required throughout the tour. Please bring your own water if needed. 

Private group tours may be booked by special arrangement. Contact the Museum for more information. No refunds will be given for reservations cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the event.

Tickets are $10 or $8 for members. Tickets for this event are limited, and spots fill up fast, so reserve yours today. Click here to purchase tickets in our online store.
