The fall foliage is the perfect backdrop to explore and learn about historic Ravinia. Begin the day in the Martin Theater inside Ravinia Festival where Art Miller, distinguished local historian and author, discusses the development of the arts venue. See Ravinia at the turn of the 20th century in a presentation that gives a new perspective on this local gem and the development of Ravinia and Highland Park. Hop on the trolley and head to the Ravinia business district or stay aboard and take a short tour around some of the significant Ravinia sites. A docent aboard the trolley provides anecdotes about the people and places that put Ravinia on the map. Drop by the Historic Ravinia Resource Center at Full Circle Architects, 737 St. Johns Ave. for refreshments, an exhibit, and interesting facts about Jens Jensen and the Ravinia Village House. Information on self-guided architectural tours, maps and brochures available. The Ravinia Festival presentation is 11 a.m.-noon in the Martin Theater. Parking is available at Ravinia in the North Lot, 418 Sheridan Road, where vehicles may remain in the lot for the remainder of the Historic Ravinia events. The trolley picks up and drops off at the conclusion of the day’s events, 4-4:30 p.m. For additional information HistoricRavinia.com, lisatemkin@me.com.
