During a time of staying at home, take a virtual tour of Glessner House, an architecturally significant historical museum at 1800 S. Prairie Ave. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the structure was the home of John J. Glessner, who had founded the International Harvester company and had been a president of Rush Medical College.
A cardboard standee of the house’s architect, Henry Hobson Richardson, looks out from the master bedroom. Each week, a different question about the house is posted in Richardson’s window.
Face masks based on 19th century designs of decorator William Morris are available for a donation of $25 or more. Log on to glessnerhouse.org, or call (312) 326-1480
