Annual Architectural House & Garden Tour

Sunday, September 23, 2018
1:00 PM ~ 4:00 PM

The Preservation Foundation’s annual fall benefit Architectural House and Garden Tour will take place on Sunday afternoon, September 23, 2018, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm with a reception following from 4:00 to 5:00. The focus of this year’s walk will be 

The Foundation’s fall benefit tours in recent years have focused on historically significant neighborhoods including North Green Bay Road, the Old South Woods, upper Lake Road, Lake Road and Deerpath near Forest Park, Ridge Lane near the corner of Deerpath and Green Bay, “old” Lake Forest along Deerpath and on Sheridan from Deerpath to Walnut, highlighting houses from the 1850s to the early 1900s. As a group, these tours offered attendees a good understanding of the evolution of this remarkable, classically-derived town. This year’s tour will continue to enrich both new and long-term Lake Foresters, increasing their understanding and appreciation for this city’s unique heritage, the reason for the Foundation’s determined efforts to preserve the legacy.

In addition, the funds raised—which may be tax-deductible for this 501(c)(3) charitable organization—play a major role in supporting the Foundation’s work in the community. Please join us for this year’s tour to support our work and visit private, nationally-known landscapes and homes in Lake Forest rivaling those of Newport and the north shore of Long Island or country places around Florence or in Normandy.

Ticket pick up will be on the day of the tour.
