School of the Art Institute students help restore buildings in Oak Brook
OAK BROOK – Students from the graduate program in historic restoration at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago recently worked at two sites in Oak Brook – the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County's Mayslake Peabody Estate and the Oak Brook Historical Society's Old Butler School.
Students stripped century-old paint, repaired brick facades and created delicate plaster details. Each summer since 2010, a partnership among the three organizations has provided students with hands-on experience in their field and helped transform two aged structures.
Both properties are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are open to the public.
