Medieval Times-Queen of the Royal Court invites you to travel through the mists of time to a festive celebration where you’ll be in awe of the gallant knights and majestic horses. The top knights of the kingdom will battle with brawn and steel to determine one victor to protect the throne. Join in as we feast and raise a goblet to the Queen. 

The Schweikher home and studio (built in 1938) is a prescient work by a young architect who was just finding his voice. The result: he created a sophisticatedly organic integration of eastern and western cultural sensibilities.  Located on a farm field on the rural edge of Chicago’s urban energy, the house staked its own distinctive position in the world of Prairie School evolution, international modernism, and Wright’s yet-to-be-defined/built Usonian invention.

Traveler should expect walking similar to attending any show or movie.  Walking surfaces at the Schweikher home will be uneven inclusive of the grounds. There is one room that is optional that requires stairs at Schweikher home.
