The Mission of Glessner House Museum is to engage diverse audiences in exploring urban life and design through the preservation and interpretation of the architecture of Henry Hobson Richardson and the historic home of John and Frances Glessner. Glessner House Museum (GHM) works to increase public awareness, understanding and appreciation for the history and architecture of Chicago as represented in the lives and home of the John J. Glessner family and the surrounding Prairie Avenue Historic District.
A National Historic Landmark, Glessner House was designed by noted American architect Henry Hobson Richardson and completed in 1887. It remains an internationally-known architectural treasure in Chicago. A radical departure from traditional Victorian architecture, the structure served as an inspiration to architects such as Louis Sullivan, Mies van der Rohe, and the young Frank Lloyd Wright and helped redefine domestic architecture.
