The Brushwood home is one of the architectural treasures of the Ryerson Conservation Area. Inspired by an 1840s Greek Revival farmhouse in Marengo, Illinois, Brushwood was built in 1942. The stately home with a columned portico was designed by Ambrose Cramer, who once worked for the great estate architect, David Adler. The historic feel of the house was achieved by salvaging brick, woodwork, and fixtures from older buildings. Cramer always described his project for the Ryersons as his best. Ryerson Woods is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Brushwood is available for private or corporate meetings, parties, weddings and other events. Rental rates vary by group type and time/day of event. To obtain information, arrange to view the house or make a reservation, please call during office hours, 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.
