What you'll do

Home to the PBR, Ferris wheel, ancient wonders, and even Chicago Bears football, Hyde Park is one of Chicago's most historic and Instagramable neighborhoods. We will explore various Chicago and National Landmarks, including a recently designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our tour will highlight museums in the Hyde Park area that house material stretching back from ancient Sumer to the present day. We will also explore both indoor and outdoor sites that reveal the history of Chicago's designation as the "Second City" and places where great minds worked and secret government programs took place.

Joseph

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago working on the transnational history of the Assyrians, a Middle Eastern ethnic group with a sizeable number in Chicago, in the early 20th century. I have studied and traveled extensively over the last 5 years studying the migration patterns of the Assyrians from their homeland in the Middle East throughout Europe, North and South America. I have lived in the Hyde Park area for 5 years and learned so much about this historic area leading tours for the University of Chicago. I am excited to share my experience and knowledge of this historic area with you and your family and friends.
