My Kind Of Event: A Mansion For Your Event? I Think Yes!
Did you know that Chicago's original "Gold Coast" was actually to the south of the Loop near Prairie Avenue during the late 19th century? This area was the neighborhood of legendary Chicago families like Kimball, Glessner, and Field. Among the mansions, the Keith House stands proudly on Prairie Avenue. It is both a noble witness of history and a magnificent venue for your next event.
The Keith House was designed in elaborate "Victorian Châteuesque style" which combines "classical and French motifs". This venerable building was named after Elbridge Keith, who built it in in 1870. As one of the few remaining original Chicago mansions, the Keith House is among the most unique venues in the city. For a bonus, it is also only 10 minutes from the Loop. In fact, it was named "One of Top 10 Wedding Venues" in Chicago by Yelp.
The building has three main rooms: the art gallery, the parlor, and the dining room. Each room can hold 60-80 guests depending on the type of event. The backyard is also available to host the perfect for summer wedding.
In fact, weddings are what the Keith House specializes in. The 1870's mansion can provide the perfect vintage, intimate, atmosphere that you're looking for your special day. Plus, pets are allowed; in case you want a furry friend to be the ring bearer of the special day. Next door to the Keith House is a perfect photo opportunity: the Chicago Women's Park and Gardens, where you can find "intricate pathways, ornate flower beds, and a central fountain".
Besides featuring many wonderful weddings, the Keith House is also known as an excellent venue for corporate events and other special occasions. Located 3 blocks from McCommick Place and Soldier Field, and easily accessible by expressway, the Keith House is an ideal place to hold your company meetings, retreats, or receptions.
With a complete set of high speed wifi, music system, A/V equipment, and more, the Keith House is an exceptional spot for any of your events.
