"West Side Stories" Walking Tour in River Forest

West Side Stories Walking Tour in River Forest
June 25, 2022 - 10:00:am — 11:30:am

Take a stroll with us through scenic, historic River Forest on West Side Stories: People and Architecture That Shaped River Forest!

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 walk up Edgewood Place and then south on Thatcher Avenue will demonstrate why these two streets are a living outdoor museum of architecture and village history. Hear fascinating and surprising stories about people who lived here, some of the renowned architects who created these remarkable homes, and the drastic changes that some of these houses have seen.

The tour begins at the northeast corner of Edgewood Place and Lake Street at 10 a.m. sharp. The tour is entirely outdoors, so facemasks are optional.

Tickets are $10 (or $8 for members) and may be purchased in our online store or by phone at (708) 848-6755.


Group tours on other dates 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.
