Governor Oglesby Mansion and its collection

House of the former U.S. senator, general in Civil War and three times governor of Illinois. Precious example of living at that time.

    DO NOT GO HERE!!!!! I used to go here often as a child and had great memories. Just went there for a family/holiday get together and had THE WORST EXPERIENCE!!!! I will never go again and never spend another penny there. The rooms kinda sucked and were horribly overpriced, the food was not good quality (over priced), and the security there was a JOKE. They ruined the holiday for us. So saddened that a place I used to love has been completely tarnished. Don’t make the same mistake I did. I can’t express it enough…DO NOT GO HERE!!!!
