Learn about this Illinois governor and ambassador to the United Nations as you tour his home, a National Historic Landmark. Hear about this influential American statesman known as ‘the man from Libertyville’ as you take in the setting where he wrote speeches, reflected on world events and found solace in the landscape. The tour begins with a video introduction to his life and career, followed by a walking tour of the home and ending in the service building with original horse stalls and exhibits.
