Make the trek to Plano, a southwest suburb, to see Mies van der Rohe’s famous Farnsworth House.
This substantially glass house has only been open for public view the last few years after a local group raised money to buy it from the last private owner. It is truly spectacular! Make an appointment for the guided tour online before you go! You can spend a little more for an interior photography permit which allows you to stay in 10 minutes longer to shoot pictures of the beautiful contemporary interior and furnishings. The Fall is the time to go when the changing leaves are spectacular as seen from the house. Stop for a bite with the locals at the Sherry’s American Cafe downtown at 1 E. Main St. before or after your tour. 14520 River Rd. Plano IL.
