Homes and mansions around “Our Historic Jewel” will be on tour.
Go back in time and history, as we celebrate today at Fort Sheridan.
On Saturday, May 19, 2018, 1:00pm to 5:00 pm, the Fort Sheridan Historical Society will be hosting a tour of many of the historic homes at Fort Sheridan. There is no better way to immerse yourself into the history of Ft. Sheridan than to walk through these beautiful historic homes. As with all Historical Society events, this event is open to the general public.
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 with everyone. We 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 is 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 19th.
Please volunteer to help, we are in need of docents for this event. There are two sessions 1-3pm and 3-5pm. As a volunteer docent, you would only need to help out during one of the sessions, leaving time to tour the other session of 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 roles.
