Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM CDT
Event Description:
Join us for our March Program Gentlemen Farmers of DuPage County and their Country Estates. The rapid rise in urban density in cities like Chicago at the end of the nineteenth century produced nostalgia for the countryside of men of wealth from business, industry, and finance. Gentlemen Farmers built beautiful homes designed by well known architects of the time and made their large farms into showplaces. This presentation recalls the heyday of the Gentleman Farmer in DuPage County and focuses on examples of country estates in Lisle, Wheaton, and Hinsdale. Our speaker will be Linda Neff, Mayslake Peabody Estate Docent & Volunteer Researcher
Netzley/Yender House, 921 School St.,Lisle
