On the north side of Chicago, there is a park named for the boundary established by the Treaty of 1816 between the Potawatomi and the U.S. government. Its main building is this picturesque Tudor-Revival field house designed by Clarence Hatzfeld and completed in 1929. The interior features Native American-themed ornamentation inspired by the park's name. The building suffered extensive damage from an electrical fire in 2012 but has been fully restored. Today, Indian Boundary Park Cultural Center offers theater arts, painting and dance lessons.
Learn about the post-fire restoration from the Park Supervisor, and bask in the light of the recently restored chandeliers with Native American motifs. Then visit the former Indian Boundary Park Zoo barn to view park archives.
Note: On Sunday, October 20th the Auditorium will be closed from 1pm to 3:30pm.
