FAMOUS PEOPLE, PLACES, AND SPACES
The fall foliage is the perfect backdrop to explore and learn about Historic Ravinia. This year we will showcase some of the Famous People, Places and Spaces of Ravinia.
And because there is so much to learn, seek and find, the event will take place in two parts, two different events on two separate dates, in two architecturally significant spaces.
Missed the first event? CLICK HERE to view the presentation given my Chris Enck describing the obstacles he overcame to relocate and preserve a home designed by architect John Van Bergen.
