Imagine having your dream wedding in a former masonic building or celebrating your birthday in a place that once was home to none other than the Knights of the Templar! The Mansion is about all this and more. Referred to as the 'Emerald Necklace of Chicago', The Mansion is basically a special-events venue replete with facilities to host everything from wedding ceremonies and birthday and anniversary parties to musical concerts and christenings. The chateau-like facade features banquet rooms, large party spaces and two auditoriums with stages. The ornate decor, the artwork and the deep historical dwellings of the place are extremely attractive and are sure to keep you coming back to the place!
