Green Line: Prairie District

Ever heard of Marshall Field? George Pullman? John Glessner? Get a sense for how Chicago’s wealthiest residents lived around the turn of the century and what remains today. This unique Chicago tour begins with an exploration and a bite at one of the city’s newly-revitalized spaces: The beautiful Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. Before boarding the train, we’ll visit a few historic and cultural stops in the Loop.

Upon arrival in the Prairie District, we’ll walk to a number of historic sites such as Motor Row, the former Chess Records, the oldest house in the city, the historic Second Presbyterian Church and the Glessner House. To top off our tour, we’ll finish with some traditional Chicago deep dish pizza and drinks.
