The Bonnet House

The Bonnet house was created by Chicago-born artist Frederic Clay Bartlett in 1920. The land where the house was built was given to him and his wife, Helen Louise Birch. Both lovers of art and ecology, they decorated the house and maintained and enhanced the land throughout the years. After more than 70 years of love and care given by generations of Bartletts and Birches, the estate became a museum in itself, a witness of history as well as an ode to ecology and art. Nowadays, the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens welcomes all in search for inspiration and history.
