From their website:
“Host your next event at our beautiful facilities, the iconic Humboldt Park Receptory Building and Stables.
The visually dramatic building, built in the Queen Anne architectural style with Central European features, is Humboldt Park’s oldest-surviving structure dating back to the late 1890s.
The building is noteworthy for its dramatic brick arches, half-timbering turrets, and a multitude of tiled roofs and dormers.
In addition to the building’s architectural prowess, our museum artwork will serve as the backdrop to your event.”

Follow the stone walk encircling the lily pool and discover a pavilion, council ring, and diverse native plantings.
This is the vision of landscape architect Alfred Caldwell: a hidden garden for the people of Chicago designed to resemble a river meandering through a great Midwestern prairie.”
