Skyline Council and Glessner House Museum present an evening for young professional organizations to meet, mingle and network while celebrating the museum’s 50th anniversary.
A National Historic Landmark, Glessner House was designed by noted American architect Henry Hobson Richardson and completed in 1887. It remains an internationally-known architectural treasure in Chicago. A radical departure from traditional Victorian architecture, the structure served as an inspiration to architects such as Louis Sullivan, Mies van der Rohe, and the young Frank Lloyd Wright and helped redefine domestic architecture. This year, Glessner House Museum celebrates its 50th Anniversary.
