About Cheney Mansion

Cheney Mansion, reminiscent of a gracious English country home, was designed by Charles E. White, Jr. in 1913. This 12,000-square-foot mansion, owned and operated by the Park District of Oak Park, provides a unique locale for community events and programs. Cheney Mansion is also a distinctive venue for your private celebrations and corporate events.

The Mansion boasts many handsome reception rooms, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and separate servants’ quarters. The 2.2 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds feature a greenhouse as well as a kitchen and cutting garden with an espalier fence, a woodland walk and waterfall fountain, and an expansive lawn for picnics and private functions. The grounds are open to the public until dusk everyday unless they are reserved for a private event.

Nestled in the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District in Oak Park, Cheney Mansion is conveniently located 9 miles directly west from downtown Chicago, and minutes from the Eisenhower Expressway. The Mansion is available to host your special occasions including weddings, rehearsal dinners, receptions, showers, corporate meetings and events, holiday parties, fundraisers, concerts and recitals, and memorial services.
