The Elizabeth Cheney mansion provides one model for what might be done with the landmark Harley-Clarke mansion on the Evanston lakefront.
It is a conference, event and educational center owned by the local park district. Children’s and adult’s classes are held there, and it is also a popular place for weddings and graduation celebrations.
