Arthur Miller speaks about the Ravinia's History.
The fall foliage is the perfect backdrop to explore and learn about historic Ravinia. Begin your day in the Martin Theater inside Ravinia Festival where Art Miller, distinguished local historian and author, will discuss the development of the arts venue that we all know so well. See Ravinia at the turn of the 20th Century in a presentation that will give a new perspective on this local gem and the development of Ravinia and Highland Park.
