The tours will continue on the 1st Saturday of the month through November 1st, 2014.
The late Tribune columnist John Husar, after touring the site, called it “Our sacred ground”. It is certainly Chicago’s “Plymouth Rock”.
This is a must-see event for history lovers, historians, educators, tour guides, and anyone who communicates the stories of Chicago to others.
All tours are free and open to the public.
