Did you miss our first excursion to the Hegeler Carus mansion? By popular demand, we are traveling back to LaSalle, Illinois to experience the magnificent Hegeler Carus mansion. The mansion that was once a family home is not only an example of high artistic achievement in architecture and interior design, but the site of historic accomplishments in industry, philosophy, publishing and religion. En route back to Chicago an additional stop will be made at the historic 1856 antebellum Reddick Mansion & Gardens.

Fee includes admission fees, guided tours, lunch and round-trip transportation by a lavatory equipped motor coach from the Driehaus Museum. For questions about accessibility during the tour, please call 312 482 8933, ext. 46 or email
