When flooding around the Farnsworth House caused the Historical Society to cancel their Mies van der Rohe Spring Bus Tour, a new September 27 date was immediately scheduled. Now, as the date approaches we’re happy to see that the weather forecast looks good!
Seats are still available for this wonderful day of traveling by chartered bus to see Mies masterpieces; the McCormick House (incorporated into the Elmhurst Art Museum) and Farnsworth House on the banks of the Fox River in Plano, IL. Guests will enjoy lunch along the way at The Homestead 1854, an inn listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Two films discussing Mies van der Rohe’s architecture will be shown en route! The bus will depart from the LF-LB Historical Society at 509 East Deerpath at 8:30 am and return by 5:30 pm. Please visit www.lflbhistory.org to reserve your seat or call 847.234.5253.
