In 1937, Cuneo Press and Hawthorn Mellody Dairy founder John Cuneo purchased this stately mansion, which was originally built for infamous ComEd founder Samuel Insull. Still filled with the family’s priceless collection of furnishings, tapestries, porcelain and artwork, the mansion also boasts a chapel ornamented with stations of the cross–themed stained-glass windows and ceiling murals. Special tours during the winter pass through a holiday flower show in the conservatory and a grand 18-foot tree.
