    • Personal Journals

Can homes tell a story? I think homes that have been around since 1892 certainly can. Especially if they were a museum visited by thousands, a location of a Black creative renaissance, a home for Pullman Porters, and owned by one of the most successful building contractors of early Chicago. Come hear about the history of the Griffiths-Burroughs home from me, its current steward.
