On the weekend of Oct/ 19 and 20, more than 250 of Chicago’s most intriguing buildings will open their doors for the Chicago Architecture Center’s annual Open House Chicago tour. Following a fabulously popular debut on last year’s tour, Open House Chicago will return to Beverly/Morgan Park with even more iconic sites for behind-the-scenes visits.
One of the world’s largest architecture festivals, Open House Chicago is a free, two-day public event with most sites open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. The event offers the rare opportunity to discover hidden gems in architecturally significant buildings all across the city.
The Beverly Area Planning Association and 19th Ward office work as Open House Chicago community partners to identify Beverly/Morgan Park locations for the event.
“We are thrilled that people from all over Chicagoland will have a chance to get an inside look at the diverse architecture and historic buildings that make Beverly/Morgan Park so amazing,” said BAPA Executive Director Susan Flood. “Being on Open House Chicago’s map last brought about 3,000 visitors to our neighborhood. We are expecting even more people to arrive here this year.”
Sites selected for this year’s Open House Chicago will be announced in mid-September.
