Construction on the Cuneo Mansion and Gardens began in 1908 and stopped during World War I. It was completed in 1918 as the home of Samuel Insull, an original founder of the General Electric Company, and designed by Chicago architect Benjamin Marshall in the Italianate style. Its gardens and landscaping were designed by world-renowned landscape architect Jens Jensen.
Admission to the Cuneo Mansion is $10 for adults. The tour starts at 11:30 and is about 1 hour in duration.
After touring the home and gardens on the grounds of the mansion we will eat a late lunch at Mickey Finn's in Libertyville. Mickey Finn's is a locally renowned brewery that serves some tasty burgers and other sandwiches along with a wide variety of beers!
