  • The tours are $15 and are definitely worth it. The house is beautiful and the rooms have items that were originally there. If you want a piece of Chicago history you need to check this out!
  • Great knowledge staff, amazing building and back story. I went in a special to hour tour which showed more than the regular tour... Worth the money and getting up early in a Saturday.
