Pleasant Home is a Prairie Style house museum located in the heart of Oak Park. Designed in 1897 by prominent architect George W. Maher, the home is a National Historic Landmark.

Pleasant Home is considered one of the earliest and most distinguished examples of Prairie School Architecture in the nation and is operated by the Pleasant Home Foundation as a living museum, which is open to the public and offers a year-round schedule of educational programs, community events, festivals, and cultural performances.

Pleasant Home was built over 100 years ago and is a tremendous resource for education, hands-on learning, and demonstrating the impact that early Prairie School Architecture has on modern architecture, design, and how we live today.

The Pleasant Home Foundation is dedicated to restoring, preserving, and operating the home both as a beloved local civic institution, as well as a destination for visitors from around the world who come to Oak Park to enjoy its vast array of architectural and cultural treasures.
