With some work, McKee House could reopen to the community
The initial verdict on the historic McKee House is in: While some areas will require substantial work, the home near Glen Ellyn is structurally sound and capable of being used again, after sitting vacant for more than 10 years.
"Overall, the bones of the house are in good condition," said Mara Braspenninx of AltusWorks, Inc., the architectural design firm contracted by the DuPage County Forest Preserve District to study the house's restoration potential. "That doesn't mean that it's move-in ready. There is going to be some work needed to make it habitable."
The house is located in the Churchill Woods Forest Preserve near the Glen Ellyn-Lombard border and has long received support from groups in the area, including Citizens for Glen Ellyn Preservation.
