NEW! Bus Tour | North Side Pursuits: Infamy from Lincoln Park to Edgewater

Saturday, November 26

Noted author and Chicago historian Richard Lindberg leads this tour of famous and forgotten crime locations and residences in Chicago’s North Side lakefront neighborhoods. Listen as he recalls the life and times of John Dillinger, George “Bugs” Moran, and Emma Goldman, whom the press described as “Queen of the Anarchists.” Learn about pivotal events, including the 1929 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, 1946 “Catch Me Before I Kill More” case, and 1960 Summerdale Police Scandal. See sites such as the home of World War II Nazi saboteurs and the haunted hospital in Edgewater, where a voice from the grave identified a previously unknown killer.

Tour runs 3.5 to 4 hours and begins and ends at the Chicago History Museum.

$55; $45 members
