Landmark Society 2024 House & Garden Tour: Features Highland Park Neighborhood

05/30/24

Tickets on sale NOW for June 8-9 Event

The 2024 Landmark Society House and Garden Tour opens doors to private homes in fascinating neighborhoods.  This year that includes doors that have never been opened for a tour. This year’s tour, scheduled for June 8-9, will take ticket holders inside five private homes, 2 gardens and a castle. 

The Highland Park neighborhood is well known for its renowned parkland, punctuated with notable buildings, and more tightly knit early 20th century streets along the district’s fringes.  These fascinating “fringes” will be a major feature of the 2024 tour.

According to Cindy Boyer, Landmark Society Director of Public Programs,

“The neighborhood has many examples of beautifully maintained homes that retain the details of an earlier era. Craftmanship is evident throughout, from an impressive hilltop “statement” home to craftsman and bungalow styles. One grand house that has never been open to the public is undergoing a major restoration, and our tour goers will be the very first invited to visit. Charming, designed homes, including one by noted architect Leander McCord, and a pretty special garden and pool round out the tour.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. This year the ticket is good for both days of the tour, with a limit of one visit to each site.

Ticket holders will receive an informational program on the history and architecture of the homes, in digital and printable format – they may also pick up a printed program at tour headquarters during the tour. Tour headquarters this year will be at the Olmsted Lodge in Highland Park.

Tickets are available on The Landmark Society website only. Ticket buyers will need a valid email address to receive their tickets. The cost is $35 for Landmark Society members and $45 for non-members. For important information about ticket purchase and participation visit www.landmarksociety.org.
