Robert R. McCormick House

A historic house that depicts the country home of a family that made the Chicago Tribune the “World’s Greatest Newspaper.” 

McCormick House is currently closed in preparation for a major interior and exterior renovation – Phase III of Project New Leaf. The work is expected to begin in October and continue throughout 2021. The house will reopen in late 2022. We will share details about the renovation when they are finalized.
