I want to throw a party in this incredible mansion! WOW! The grounds, structure, windows fabulous! A SMALL THEATRE HOLDING ABOUT 100 IS NESTLED IN THIS MANSION AS WELL! Jeeves Takes A Bow was playing there Friday evening! Incredible 6 actor play! Peek out the window to view the beautiful small chapel on the grounds in walking distance from the mansion. A MUST visit! It was my first time and it will not be the last!

I attend for the jazz series. Many friends attend for the theatre. Theatre is indoors in the winter and outdoors in the summer. I have also attended a wedding in the beautiful chapel on the grounds. There are art exhibits and tours of the mansion.

The atmosphere fabulous, great parking, but most of all, the sincere dedication of the Rice family for pulling it all together and keeping it going. A lovely setting and a huge gem of a find in the Western suburbs. Will always go back. Looking forward to the 2013 season.
