Overview

This site is of great interest to Disney buffs and animation fans alike. Disney's father, Elias, had wanderlust in his bones, moving across the country in search of a better life for his growing family. In 1892, he settled on Chicago's North Side and built this house to his wife's specifications. Rumor has it that Elias was a carpenter on the World's Exposition. Walt Disney attended McKinley High School and later took classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. The city considers declaring this house a landmark building; however, the family who lives here resists the idea in the interest of privacy. Please use common sense, and do not disturb them on your visit.
