Virtual Presentation by Laurie Petersen

Thursday, March 11th, 7:00 pm

Chicago has seen a wave of creative uses for its old buildings: warehouses to tech offices, office buildings to boutique hotels, even an apartment building to a private museum. Winnetka has been part of this trend since 1925, when Academy Hall was converted from a school to a fire station! Join us to explore fascinating building transformations whose original and current uses will surprise you!
