Secrets of the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool

 

October 16 & 17, 2021 as part of Open House Chicago

During Open House Chicago weekend, October 16-17th, celebrate the Conservancy’s 20th anniversary of the restoration of the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, a project that earned the site Chicago and National Historic Landmark status. Events will take place from 10:00am through 3pm each day.
