We can’t take bus trips right now but, thanks to the internet, we can explore the world from the comfort of our homes. Every Wednesday, we’re presenting a series of links to cultural institutions in Chicago and beyond. Today we’re taking a virtual bus trip to Cantigny Park.
Located in Wheaton, Illinois, Cantigny Park is the 500-acre former estate of Colonel Robert R. McCormick, the longtime editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune. Discover the history of Cantigny, explore the McCormick House, browse the collection of the First Division Museum, and take a look at an online exhibit of the park’s tanks and artillery pieces dating from World War I to Desert Shield.
