Once the private residence of Eleanor Robinson Countiss-Whiting and her small family, 1524 N. Lake Shore Drive has been the International Museum of Surgical Science for the last half-century, and we are excited to invite you on a candlelit tour of the mansion this March. Please join us March 19, 2020 as we imagine what homelife would have been like at 1524, examine the architecture and discuss the many ways in which the mansion’s residents shaped and participated in some of Chicago’s early history.
