Weber House & Garden

 
 

Welcome to the Weber House and Garden website. The Weber House is a storybook tudor cottage which sits on a two acre English garden of meandering paths, roses, hollyhocks and old oaks. Inside, cozy candlelit rooms reflect the 18th century.

The history of the Weber House is interlaced with the rich and famous. Such as, an Academy Award winning actress who covered for F.D.R., an invisible man who forgot his walking stick, television stars who slept under the bed, a theater impresario who liked Whistler, and a major gossip columnist who wrote about them all!

Ted Weber, long time Chicago radio and television personality, and creator of Weber House and Garden will introduce you to each one as you tour the house room by room. His stories of Eleanor Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Richard Nixon and many others will surprise and delight you.Garden Picture

Mr. Weber's nationally syndicated radio shows originated from such Chicago landmarks as The Italian Village, Punchinello's on Rush, Marina City, Piper's Alley in Old Town, and the Blackstone and Knickerbocker Hotels. His guests ranged from movie stars, to politicians and authors. His interviewing skills also took him to Europe where he filed reports for NBC. His television credits include "Ted and the Angel," "C.E.T.  Amateur Hour," "Ted Weber In Old Town," and "A.M. Chicago".
