Description

Visit the home of the Ridge Historical Society, the group charged with preserving and interpreting the history of the Beverly Hills, Morgan Park, Washington Heights and Mount Greenwood communities. The group has been located in the Graver-Driscoll House, originally designed for affluent homebuilder Herbert Graver in 1922, since the early 1970s. The house is situated on the Blue Island Ridge, a railroad-adjacent natural elevation that attracted the development of large homes and mansions in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Architect John T. Hetherington, known for designing other graceful period revival homes in the area, intended this brick and stone Tudor Revival-style home to nestle into the sloping hillside. It features walkout terraces and elegant landscaping.
