Ted Weber House

Ted Weber is a long time Chicago radio and television personality, along with being the creator of Weber House and Gardens. His stories of Richard Nixon, Eleanor Roosevelt, Harry Truman and ‘The Shadow’ are very entertaining.
The Ted Weber House is a storybook tudor home which is encompassed by two arces of English Garden full of flowers, trees, statues and water features. Inside the home, you will find cozy candlelit rooms that reflect the 18th century style.

If you’re in the Starved Rock / Utica, Illinois, I highly suggest going!!

  1. While I am not “into” sculptured, ornamental gardens (I prefer an “organized” natural look), the workmanship that went into the large country estate displays of the 18C and 19C was very impressive and should be respected as such. I can recall a number of visits to such gardens in the UK in the 1960’s and some of your pics certainly captured the strategic planning and creative trimming/pruning of those earlier times. The whole place sounds like a “must see” for anybody in the area. Your Post brought back a lot of happy memories. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. I love English Tudor homes and the garden looks beautiful. I’ll make a note of this for our summer visit to Illinois, although with family obligations who knows if we’ll have time. I’ll definitely be visiting the Japanese Tea Garden in Rockford though.
