The Noble-Seymour-Crippen House is the headquarters of the not-for-profit Norwood Park Historical Society and houses its museum, archives, exhibits, and meeting space. Built in 1833, the Noble-Seymour-Crippen House is Chicago’s oldest house and is a designated City of Chicago Landmark (1988) and listed on the National Register of Historic Places (2000). The Museum is open all Saturdays from noon to 4 PM except when there has been a recent snow of 2″ or more. Reservations are encouraged. A voluntary $5 donation is asked for admission.

As of noon Thursday, December, 28, those who use Comcast / Xfinity for internet access cannot access this webpage. We have reported it to Comcast. They responded that access should be restored by sometime Saturday, and provided no explanation as to why we were blocked. We know that those who use AT&T, Verizon and at least T-Mobile can get to this site without issue.
