This exterior tour visits 14 houses which were once owned by major gangsters in these two suburbs, including Tony Accardo, Paul Ricca, and “Machine Gun Jack” McGurn. The guide, John Binder, will discuss the history of the house, the career of the mobster former owner, the family’s time there, and the interesting features of many of the homes (ten of which he has been in), including secret rooms/hiding places, a bank vault, and a tunnel. The tour lasts about 2 hours and 15 minutes.
