BAPA Home Tour

This year’s Beverly/Morgan Park Home Tour celebrates the legacy of three generations of Hetherington architects and their contributions to the built beauty of our neighborhood. 

This is a self guided tour- trolley service is NOT provided.

Hetherington-designed Homes

Visit five uniquely beautiful homes in one of Chicago’s most historic neighborhoods when the Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) partners with Ridge Historical Society (RHS) to present the popular Home Tour on Sunday, May 15.

BAPA’s event showcases a selection of Hetherington-designed homes in the heart of the Ridge Historic District and nestled among the hills of Beverly/Morgan Park.

Home Tour attendees will get a rare chance to walk through each outstanding site for an up-close look at the details of design, decorating, art collections and lifestyle that make each of the Hetherington-designed homes outstanding examples of gracious living in the city.

Complimentary Tastings & Experiences

You’ll be treated to a variety of interior designs, architecturally significant buildings, and beautiful landscapes. Enjoy fun and informative experiences, food, beverage tastings, and entertainment.

RHS Architecture Exhibit Opening

This year’s tour starts from the Ridge Historical Society, 10621 S. Seeley, also known as the Graver-Driscoll House, a Hetherington design that celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2021.
