Tours of Piper Hall

The staff of the WLA is happy to provide educational, architectural, or general public tours of the restored first floor of Piper Hall. Built in 1909, the building is an architectural gem, one of the few surviving lakefront mansions on the Northside of Cook County.

The tours are by appointment only, typically last 45 minutes, but can be shortened. The building is fully handicap accessible.  Individual, group, or class tours may be arranged by contacting the WLA at 773.508.8837 or WLArchives@luc.edu.
