Event description

Description


The Helen and Bryan Lathrop House, designed by Charles McKim and completed in 1892, is a notable example of Georgian Revival architecture. In 1922, The Fortnightly of Chicago purchased the House from Helen Aldis Lathrop, a longtime member. Several changes (at the time of purchase and in subsequent years) have made the former private residence functional and inviting for the use of Fortnightly members and their guests.

The Lathrop House was designated as a Landmark by the City of Chicago in 1973 and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. In 2014 Landmarks Illinois presented the Fortnightly with the prestigious Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Award for Stewardship, in recognition of ninety-two years of caring for and preserving the landmark house.
