The Fort Sheridan Historical Society will be hosting a tour of 8 historic homes at Fort Sheridan. There is no better way to immerse yourself into the history of Ft. Sheridan than to walk through the beautiful historic homes.

The book shown here is the directory from the first and only Fort Sheridan House Tour in 2000. We are in the process of replicating some of it for this year’s tour. We look forward to sharing our rich history and are most grateful to this year’s homeowners for allowing us to use their beautiful “Historic Jewels” to bring the past into the future. As always the case when Fort Sheridan residents and friends of the Fort get together, it is mesmerizing to hear stories and share memorabilia about what used to be here. So take a step back in time and join us on Saturday, May 20th.
