Adlai E. Stevenson Historic Home
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Adlai Stevenson was the 31st governor of Illinois; Democratic presidential candidate in 1952 and 1956 (you may remember that we liked Ike, and Stevenson was unsuccessful); and UN ambassador from 1961 - 1965.
His home in Libertyville (built in 1938) has been restored and is open to the public at specified times (upcoming 2014 dates: June 8, July 20, and August 24). Tours require pre-registration and a $5 fee. Call 847-968-3321.
The house is modern and Art Deco in style. There are many large windows, porches, and decks to provide views of the surrounding landscape.
The lovely grounds and service building are open daily 9-5, April to October. (free) The service building held the four-car garage, the horse stalls and tack room, and the caretaker's living quarters.
The current exhibit in the service building is about the role of the media in politics and features several very interesting TV spots from the 50's.
