Historic Ravinia: Famous People, Places and Spaces

Friday, September 08, 2017
The fall foliage is the perfect backdrop to explore and learn about Historic Ravinia. This year we will showcase some of the Famous People, Places and Spaces of Ravinia.


And because there is so much to learn, seek and find, the event is taking place in two parts, two different events on two separate dates, in two architecturally significant spaces. The September event was a great success. Be sure not to miss the October event!

OCTOBER 22ND EVENT
Who’s Who and What’s Where? The fun continues as we learn more about Ravinia, its famous residents and the neighborhood.

 Historic Ravinia will continue with Part 2

‚ÄčLearn the history of Ravinia School and the impact it had on the entire community. Ravinia Student Ambassadors will share their knowledge about their school while leading tours.  Activity Stations will provide kid-size information and art activities to supplement the day’s topics.
