Happy Centennial Year!
Everyone planning and volunteering for our big Ravenswood Manor Centennial is on a mission to bring you a year of fun, engaging, educational, and community building events and projects in celebration of an amazing 100 years. We encourage you to join in the fun, meet your neighbors, and learn something new about the Manor.

For a list of events, both annual and centennial, go to our Events page. Also for updates take advantage of our three other communication channels: 1) “like” RMIA on Facebook, 2) sign up for twice a month email updates, and 3) watch for the next issue of the Manor News delivered quarterly to your doorstep.

Centennial Bash

This team is planning our big neighborhood wide block party in Manor Park on Saturday, June 28th. The event is a joint effort of the RMIA, Horner Park Advisory Council and Horner Park, Chicago Park District. The Bash kicks off with the annual Independence Day Bike Parade at 12.00n and runs all afternoon and evening with family activities, food trucks, and lots of live music at the pergola.

Manor Centennial Research/Tour Committee

These two very active committees have combined meetings to efficiently share resources and support each other.  History has been researching the Manor and writing articles for our newsletter, Manor News, as well as for this website and our facebook page. Walking Tours are researching and writing four tours for residents to enjoy, both on the walking tours and on their own self-guided tours.
