Simply Amazing
Yesterday I had the privilege of touring the Clarke House in Chicago. This historic old building is beautiful. More impressive than the building was the tour guide Brenda Bohen’s knowledge of the history and construction of the building. The additional background information about the Clarke family was also extremely interesting. I enjoyed the tour so much that I came back to take the tour a second time. I feel very fortunate to have this experience and hope to take more tours with Brenda in the future.

Good audio tour
We went during one of the scheduled tours of the house. The tour guide was not available, but there was a limited number of audio tour devices.Latecomers could view the house's exhibits without the benefit of the audio, or wait for one to be returned. The story of the house, and the development of Chicago, is very interesting. It had been moved twice, and is now near where it was originally. The furnishings and decor are mostly not original, but are of the period.The grounds around the house are also lovely, with an interesting sculpture by Louise Bourgeois in the garden. The house is well worth a visit.

Oldest surviving house in Chicago
I still remember the first time I saw the Henry B. Clarke House. It was in 1977. The City of Chicago had purchased the house and moved it to its current location at 1827 South Indiana Avenue in the historic Prairie Avenue Historic District. I was in the neighborhood because my car was being repaired at a nearby shop. I was waiting for the work to be completed so I took a stroll around the neighborhood, past the Glessner House and other Gilded Age houses along South Prairie Avenue. And I turned the corner on South Indiana Avenue and came upon the Clarke House, which was undergoing restoration and renovation before being opened to the public. A workman invited me to come in and look around. It prompted me to do some historical research on Henry Brown Clarke and his house, often described as the oldest surviving house in Chicago. The Clark House was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1970 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. Henry Brown Clarke, a native New Yorker, came to Chicago in 1833. He entered into the hardware business and provided building materials to the growing Chicago populace. The house was built in 1836. Originally built on 20.08 acres of land near Michigan Avenue between 16th and 17th Streets, it has been moved twice, most recently in 1977 to its current location at 1827 South Indiana Avenue, in a park and gardens that is part of the Prairie Avenue Historic District. Clarke's decision to build south of the Chicago River made him the first wealthy Chicagoan to build there. Clarke died in 1849 after being stricken with cholera. His widow lived in the house until 1860. She renovated the house, adding an elaborate back portico with Doric columns and an Italianate cupola. In 1871, John Chrimes, a prominent Chicago tailor, bought the house and moved it farther south to 45th and Wabash in what was then a township of Hyde Park. Later, it was the working home of Bishop Louis Henry Ford, for whom the Bishop Ford Expressway was named. In 1977, the house was moved to its current location, a project that included lifting the entire building over the El tracks on the Englewood-Jackson Park line. Today, the Clarke House Museum is operated as a historic house museum by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. Guided tours are available by appointment with the neighborhood Glessner House Museum.

Great Tour - Good House
2018年8月 • 夫妻情侣
Visiting the oldest standing house in Chicago is a nice story but the house is just okay. The story of the Clarke family and how they struggled to save the house over the years is fascinating and really gives a good insight into the history of Chicago. Our tour guide expertly told the story while she took us through the house. What was a little disappointing with the house is that the furniture and artifacts weren’t original to the family but to the but rather the period. It is always a plus to go into a historic house museum and see the original items they way the family would have lived.

Oldest house in Chicago
This house is so historic and shows how middle class people lived 175 years ago. The docent was informative and knew how to make the story interesting!

Awful guided tour of interior historic home museum
2018年6月 • 独自旅游
I am Chicago born and raised. An architect. I was married in the Glessner House. I love this part of Chicago.
The bulding is in need of repairs and painted. Interior guided tours are rushed and poorly presented. My docent was very old, spoke softly, and yelled at me very loudly when I took 3 steps away from the crowd with screaming children into another room. It was so dark he needed laser pointers and a flashlight. I was unimpressed.
Perhaps you will get a docent who is not an octogenarian. Perhaps you will be allowed to read the displays before you are told to move on with the security guard shadowing you.
I doubt I will return, I left after I was reprimanded.

Very Interesting History
2018年6月 • 夫妻情侣
The Clarke House has a great history and our docent did a great job of telling the story. The museum is owned by the City of Chicago and is therefore free.

The house feels like it should be a southern plantation home as opposed to something from Chicago. All of the furnishings are period correct but not original to the house.

There is an elevator in the house for those that need it, but it was not working the day we were there.

Cool visit to the past
2018年1月 • 独自旅游
This was a interesting museum and the tour guide was wry and fun, you could tell he knew his history and not just of the house.
The only minus is the odd hours, they are only open 3 days a week for 3 hours on those days, its worth a visit if possible, being able to walk thru a house that survived the great Chicago fire is nothing to sneeze at

small, long waiting time
2017年10月 • 独自旅游
I visit there in the Chicago open house event, the house is very small, so each time, it only allows a few people to go in, and others need to wait outside, I wait for at least 15 min in order to cone in to take a look, but when you go inside, just a few rooms to see, and the upper level is not opened to public, so you can finish the sight-seeing by 5-10 min, the waiting time outside is much longer than the visiting time inside. It may be less people to visit this house if it's not in the open house event days, Moreover, you can't use flash to take photos, while inside is rather dark, the rainy day making it even more dark, so you can't take clear picture without using flash.

Marvelous glimpse of mid-1800s
2017年10月 • 夫妻情侣
The Clarke House and museum presents an amazing glimpse into Chicago's history from 1803 through the 1850 and more. The narrative is presented in the story of the oldest surviving Greek Revival timber construction. The house is the ONLY surviving construction of this type near Chicago. This remarkable house preserves much original timber, lathe and plaster construction and period artifacts. It also exemplifies the City of Chicago results of preserving an irreplaceable treasure.

This city park setting offers FREE docent-led tours. It is nested in the remarkable Prairie Street neighborhood on the small (and beautiful) grounds of the Chicago Women's Park and Gardens. Also, take in the adjacent Glessner House Museum.

Easily accessible by public transportation.
