Pleasant Home Programs

Mapped in the northeast corner of Mills Park stands Pleasant Home. The structure is a National Historic Landmark designed in 1897 by noted Prairie School architect George W. Maher for investment banker and philanthropist, John W. Farson.

Pleasant Home is owned by the Park District of Oak Park but its operation is overseen by the Pleasant Home Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 1990 dedicated to restoring, preserving, and operating this 30-room architectural landmark as an historic house museum.

Located in the northeast corner of Mills Park, Pleasant Home is available for fun programming to enhance your hobbies and lifestyle. Sign up with friends and family or do a solo session!

Some programs include:

  • Murder mystery parties
  • Dining and dancing
  • Outdoor dinners
  • Arts & crafts
  • Holiday events

….and more!
