CELEBRATED PALMER HOUSE TO OPEN HOTEL MUSEUM (Chicago)

 



___________________________________________________________________________

CELEBRATED PALMER HOUSE TO OPEN HOTEL MUSEUM

The landmark hotel launches a museum showcasing its storied history
Since opening in 1871, the historic Palmer House (17 E. Monroe) has played host to countless world leaders, heads of state, and international celebrities and notables. Moreover, the hotel has been the site of some of the nation’s and world’s most important galas, events, and newsworthy happenings including the campaigns for presidency for James Garfield, Grover Cleveland, William Jennings Bryan, William McKinley, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. The Palmer House
Museum located inside the hotel showcases the landmark’s incredible history.

The museum was created with the help of Ken Price, the hotel’s resident historian. Price has been at the hotel for nearly 30 years and leads visitors through the museum and hotel sharing stories along the way through its History is Hott presentation and tour. History is Hott begins with a luncheon prepared by Executive Chef Joseph Rose, followed by a trip to the museum where Price shows guests relics from the hotel’s past and explains the hotel’s remarkable history.

“Our History is Hott tour has been incredibly successful and now, with the new museum, the tour is truly extraordinary,” says Price. “The Palmer House has a long and impressive history and to be able to share that with visitors is just wonderful.”
Some of the items in the museum include one of Bertha Palmer’s scrap books from 1907 dealing with her efforts in the women’s rights movement. Gold Havilland china used for the historic dinner honoring the return of President Ulysses S. Grant from an around the world trip is displayed with the sterling silver beer stein used by Mark Twain, the event’s master of ceremonies. It was called “the greatest banquet in history.” Guests can also see a fine china spittoon, believed to be the only surviving vessel of its kind from the hotel’s bar circa 1890, as well as ads from the fabled Empire Room offering a complete dinner and star studded floor show for $2.00!

Additional historical relics come from the fabled Empire Room; the museum has the complete original journal of performances, listing every performer who has ever played at what was once one of the most famous nightclubs in Chicago. The journal includes such entries as the listing of a then-unknown performer who received $900 for a five-week performance and went on to become Liberace. An autographed white glove belonging to the Great Hildegard, one of the greatest chanteuse of the 20th Century is also on display.

In addition to the rare documents, photographs, drawings, and objects, the museum has an audio portion featuring recently discovered masters of recordings made in both the Empire and Victorian rooms.

After the museum, guests are lead through the hotel where they receive an exclusive tour of the legendary lobby and grand ballrooms, many of which are normally closed to the public. The tour will soon include two paintings of James and Dolly Madison, recently unearthed from the basement of the hotel. The paintings, possibly painted by
Anders Zorn, are being restored by Artist Jaime Dobbertin. The restoration will be done live in the Palmer House lobby from April 17 to April 18 for guests to watch as the paintings come back to life.

“This is an incredible find by the team at the Palmer House,” says Dobbertin. “I’m truly honored to work with these paintings and thrilled that I will get to share the restoration with onlookers as I work in the lobby.”

There is a wealth of history under the 24 carat gold ceilings and crystal chandeliers of the Palmer House. A time that once was is still very much alive and continues on at the landmark location. With the addition of a new museum to the History is Hott tour, visitors can get a glimpse inside the hotel’s illustrious past.

Reservations are $60 per person, which includes lunch and the tour. Reservations must be made 24-hours in advance by calling Lockwood Restaurant at 312.917.3404 or online at www.lockwoodrestaurant.com. Tours will be offered Tuesday through Saturday and stops are subject to availability. Children under the age of 12 are $20, children over 12 are $30 and will have the option to choose from a children’s menu.
