Located on the wooded Sunset Hill estate of the late Hazle Buck Ewing, the Ewing Cultural Center encompasses the open-air Theatre at Ewing (summer home of the Illinois Shakespeare Festival), the elegant Ewing Manor (which is open for tours) and the beautiful Genevieve Green Gardens.

Completed in 1929 in the Channel-Norman style, Ewing Cultural Center embodies the grace, practicality and natural beauty of the time period in which it was built.
