White City Meet

The tour will begin and end at 11 am the west corner of the Park District Parking Lot on the South Side of the Museum of Science and Industry. There is easy access off of north- or south-bound Lake Shore Drive and Science Drive. The tour is expected to last 90 minutes and runs 1.5 to 2.5 miles.

Tour guide Ray Johnson is a former criminal investigator. He is the author of Chicago’s Haunt Detective and Chicago History—the Stranger Side.

The Friends of the White City recently received their IRS determination letter and are now officially a 501(c)(3) corporation. Bring some tip money for the end of the tour, and you might be able to make it tax deductable.
