Walt Disney House
This site is of great interest to Disney buffs and animation fans alike. Disney's father, Elias, had wanderlust in his bones, moving across the country in search of a better life for his growing family. In 1892, he settled on Chicago's North Side and built this house to his wife's specifications. Rumor has it that Elias was a carpenter on the World's Exposition. Walt Disney attended McKinley High School and later took classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. The city considers declaring this house a landmark building; however, the family who lives here resists the idea in the interest of privacy. Please use common sense, and do not disturb them on your visit.
