Join us for the Fall 2018 Lunch & Learn Series presented by UIS Alumni SAGE Society and the Illinois State Historical Society. These lunch-time programs will stimulate thinking as they build upon the University's tradition of open and intelligent dialogue.

Now a museum with an education center, the mansion has reopened to the public and it's time to take a look inside!
