Great place for an outing! 6/30/2006

This park/museums/gardens are maintained by the (Chicago) Tribune Foundation on property that was owned by Col. Robert McCormick, who was the publisher of the Tribune during the middle part of the 20th century until his death in 1955. I went there with my wife. We toured the mansion, which was fairly interesting, particularly the collections of asntique swords and pistols, along with a HUGE library. The military museum is great because it's set up is such that you get the flavor of what the streets and conditions were for various wars. We walked through an intriguing "Idea garden" which has interesting plants with my personal favorite plot, The Colors of the Big Ten, featuring Orange Marigolds for my Illini. For reasoins I don't fully understand, I seem to have more interest in history as an adult than I did as a child. There's planty of history here. This was a peaceful, enjoyable afternoon and not very expensive. I recommend it highly. more
