Enter to win one of six (6) sets of two (2) passes to visit Farnsworth House in Plano, Illinois.

Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, the Farnsworth House is the quintessential example of modern design. One of only three such examples of the intimate, domestic structures designed by Mies, the Farnsworth House is tucked away into a sanctuarial grove, its parralel planes and unadorned beauty held in elegant suspension above the Fox River. Visiting the Farnsworth House invites reflection, whether on a moonlit guided tour or a midday concert on the terrace. We invite you to enter to win these passes and enjoy your own unique experience visiting this storied home. This trip is a perfect pairing with a stay at The Homestead 1854, Timber Creek Inn & Suites, or any number of nearby Aurora Area hotels
