Homes and mansions around the Parade Ground of “Our Historic Jewel” will be on tour.
Go back in time and history as we celebrate today at Fort Sheridan.
On Saturday, May 20, 2017, 1:00pm to 5:00 pm, the Fort Sheridan Historical Society will be hosting a tour of 8 historic homes at Fort Sheridan. There is no better way to immerse yourself into the history of Ft. Sheridan than to walk through the beautiful historic homes.
The book shown here is the directory from the first and only Fort Sheridan House Tour in 2000. We are in the process of replicating some of it for this year’s tour. We look forward to sharing our rich history and are most grateful to this year’s homeowners for allowing us to use their beautiful “Historic Jewels” to bring the past into the future. As always the case when Fort Sheridan residents and friends of the Fort get together, it is mesmerizing to hear stories and share memorabilia about what used to be here. So take a step back in time and join us on Saturday, May 20th.
Please volunteer to help. We are in need of docents to show our homes. Tickets for docents are $20. There are two sessions 1-3pm and 3-5pm. As a docent you are required to spend only one session in your Tour House giving you the opportunity to see the other Historic Homes. Please call Donna Fitzgerald to sign up 847-433-4333 or click on the Contact page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can assist in one of these important rolls.
Advanced Tickets will be available here, through May 12, 2017 for $45ea. After May 12, $50. So please purchase your tickets early!
