Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

I first became acquainted with the Henry B. Clarke House or Clarke-Ford House in 1977. I was waiting for my car to be repaired at a body shop on Chicago's South Side so I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. I walked smack-dab into the Henry B. Clarke House. Built in 1836 and considered the oldest existing house ever built in Chicago, it was in the process of being moved to its current location at 1827 South Indiana Avenue, a block east of Michigan Avenue, in a park and gardens, part of the Prairie Avenue Historic District. Today, the Greek Revival structure looks as it did after Clarke's death in 1849, when his wife renovated the house by adding an elaborate back portico with Doric columns, an Italianate cupola and rooms on the south side of the house while decorating the dining room and front parlor. The Clarke House was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1970 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. In 2022, the house became known as the Clarke-Ford House to recognize the support of Bishop Louis Henry Ford, a local church leader who did much to preserve and repair the house and worked to bring its history to the attention of the city. The Bishop Ford Freeway is also named in his honor.

This house is an amazing piece of Chicago history known little to most people. We did a free tour on Saturday at 1pm, there is also another tour at 2:30 as well. The tour lasted a little over an hour and was very informative. We learned a lot about the house itself, the owners and of Chicago back in the 1800s. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in the history of Chicago.

Yesterday I had the privilege of touring the Clarke House in Chicago. This historic old building is beautiful. More impressive than the building was the tour guide Brenda Bohen’s knowledge of the history and construction of the building. The additional background information about the Clarke family was also extremely interesting. I enjoyed the tour so much that I came back to take the tour a second time. I feel very fortunate to have this experience and hope to take more tours with Brenda in the future.

We went during one of the scheduled tours of the house. The tour guide was not available, but there was a limited number of audio tour devices.Latecomers could view the house's exhibits without the benefit of the audio, or wait for one to be returned. The story of the house, and the development of Chicago, is very interesting. It had been moved twice, and is now near where it was originally. The furnishings and decor are mostly not original, but are of the period.The grounds around the house are also lovely, with an interesting sculpture by Louise Bourgeois in the garden. The house is well worth a visit.

I still remember the first time I saw the Henry B. Clarke House. It was in 1977. The City of Chicago had purchased the house and moved it to its current location at 1827 South Indiana Avenue in the historic Prairie Avenue Historic District. I was in the neighborhood because my car was being repaired at a nearby shop. I was waiting for the work to be completed so I took a stroll around the neighborhood, past the Glessner House and other Gilded Age houses along South Prairie Avenue. And I turned the corner on South Indiana Avenue and came upon the Clarke House, which was undergoing restoration and renovation before being opened to the public. A workman invited me to come in and look around. It prompted me to do some historical research on Henry Brown Clarke and his house, often described as the oldest surviving house in Chicago. The Clark House was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1970 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. Henry Brown Clarke, a native New Yorker, came to Chicago in 1833. He entered into the hardware business and provided building materials to the growing Chicago populace. The house was built in 1836. Originally built on 20.08 acres of land near Michigan Avenue between 16th and 17th Streets, it has been moved twice, most recently in 1977 to its current location at 1827 South Indiana Avenue, in a park and gardens that is part of the Prairie Avenue Historic District. Clarke's decision to build south of the Chicago River made him the first wealthy Chicagoan to build there. Clarke died in 1849 after being stricken with cholera. His widow lived in the house until 1860. She renovated the house, adding an elaborate back portico with Doric columns and an Italianate cupola. In 1871, John Chrimes, a prominent Chicago tailor, bought the house and moved it farther south to 45th and Wabash in what was then a township of Hyde Park. Later, it was the working home of Bishop Louis Henry Ford, for whom the Bishop Ford Expressway was named. In 1977, the house was moved to its current location, a project that included lifting the entire building over the El tracks on the Englewood-Jackson Park line. Today, the Clarke House Museum is operated as a historic house museum by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. Guided tours are available by appointment with the neighborhood Glessner House Museum.

Visiting the oldest standing house in Chicago is a nice story but the house is just okay. The story of the Clarke family and how they struggled to save the house over the years is fascinating and really gives a good insight into the history of Chicago. Our tour guide expertly told the story while she took us through the house. What was a little disappointing with the house is that the furniture and artifacts weren’t original to the family but to the but rather the period. It is always a plus to go into a historic house museum and see the original items they way the family would have lived.

This house is so historic and shows how middle class people lived 175 years ago. The docent was informative and knew how to make the story interesting!

I am Chicago born and raised. An architect. I was married in the Glessner House. I love this part of Chicago.
The bulding is in need of repairs and painted. Interior guided tours are rushed and poorly presented. My docent was very old, spoke softly, and yelled at me very loudly when I took 3 steps away from the crowd with screaming children into another room. It was so dark he needed laser pointers and a flashlight. I was unimpressed.
Perhaps you will get a docent who is not an octogenarian. Perhaps you will be allowed to read the displays before you are told to move on with the security guard shadowing you.
I doubt I will return, I left after I was reprimanded.

The Clarke House has a great history and our docent did a great job of telling the story. The museum is owned by the City of Chicago and is therefore free.

The house feels like it should be a southern plantation home as opposed to something from Chicago. All of the furnishings are period correct but not original to the house.

There is an elevator in the house for those that need it, but it was not working the day we were there.

This was a interesting museum and the tour guide was wry and fun, you could tell he knew his history and not just of the house.
The only minus is the odd hours, they are only open 3 days a week for 3 hours on those days, its worth a visit if possible, being able to walk thru a house that survived the great Chicago fire is nothing to sneeze at
