AtoZ Blog Challenge – O – Open House Chicago


‘FOLLOW ME’ so we don’t loose touch when the #Challenge is over. After a vacation, I’ll be posting once again.


OPEN HOUSE CHICAGO is a free two day event every year that is put on by the Chicago Architectural Foundation. This year (2015) the dates are October 17-18. IT IS FREE and features 150 sites. Click on the link I have provided to learn more. The research for the new novel, Facing East introduced me to several Chicago finds that I continue to enjoy and highly recommend. I have written about the Facebook page, Forgotten Chicago for the letter C, and here is information for the letter O, about this free event. What an opportunity.  It is worth building a trip to Chicago around these dates. That’s what I’m going to do. See you there?

    Oh, good to know about this. I only live about 4 hours from Chicago, but we moved here from the west coast, so I haven’t really gotten to know all Chicago’s treasures. This sounds like a good place to start.

  2. I would certainly attend it I were near. The architecture in Chicago is gorgeous. I remember reading about the origin and history, but details elude me. Just beautiful.

    I would be there, but our trip is scheduled for next month. We’re going to take the architectural boat tour again, though!

  4. That sounds like a fun event!

  5. Hi Stepheny! Thanks for visiting my site, and it’s great to meet another writer! I love Chicago. I was there close to ten years ago for a writer’s conference. It’s a wonderful city, and I hope to return sometime in the near future and hit some of the great restaurants!
