Fodor's Review

Curious about how the wealthy built their urban palaces during America's Gilded Age? Steps away from the Magnificent Mile, the former Samuel Mayo Nickerson mansion has lavish interiors with 19th-century furniture and objets d'art, including pieces by Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Herter brothers.
