Hi. A long time ago, I lived in Lake Bluff and worked at the Harrison House. If you’re old enough to remember, it had conferences for large companies. B4 that, it was a monastery, if I’m not mistaken. If so, please let me know.
I happened upon a DailyNorthShore article when I was enquiring about Harrison House of Lake Bluff. Honestly, I was stunned when I read that it was no longer a conference center.
The article about what has happened to Harrison House was very fascinating. I think I could have told you that the first Stonebridge would never make it. I had a good chortle when I saw the photo/drawing of the hones of the very wealthy seniors back to back with each other.
What happened to the beautiful trees that lined the front, winding entrance road? The daffodils along the way were glorious. Once you came to the “House”, and parked your car in the back, you were upon acres and acres of field. I also need to know how many acres were in the entire Harrison House property.
If someone in the DailyNorthShore readership could answer my questions, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
