Historic house, 1933. Under construction....forever....the history is interesting and there is a sign on the street describing where it come from (Chicago on barge) and why, and how it used to look. Not much more. No parking around but you can stop next to the sign and read it from your car and tune in to information on the internet.

A relic of the once grand home that had a airplane hangar as a garage. It has fallen into disrepair and several tries at redoing the home have met with problems from the historical committee and no one has stepped up in several years. This was probably the coolest home from the world fair group, but sits in a rotting... More

After the Worlds Fair, the house was moved on a barge across the Lake Michigan to Beverly Shores and placed in its present location. After the National Park Service took... More

The only house not "adopted" yet for renovation. Saw the roughed out interior first floor last year on the historical tour.
