Words and pictures just don't do this justice. Ted is a fantastic host/tour guide - just listening to him and his many stories make the tour worth it. But of course there's more to see. It's absolutely amazing what he has done with these gardens...More

Mr. Weber has a very engaging, story-telling manner. The gardens are lovely (a labor of love). The house is a unique treasure (not what I expected at all--better). We thoroughly enjoyed the history and his stories. He's a quick wit and so fun to listen...More

To say that Mr. Weber is an interesting character would be a great understatement. Throughout the house, you will see photographs, newsprint, and hear his own words as evidence of a fascinating life in Chicago radio and other media. Mr. Weber has a dry wit,...More
