Cantigny Park, Cantigny Golf and the First Division Museum are important expressions of Colonel Robert R. McCormick’s legacy and offer recreational and educational opportunities for the entire community.
Cantigny Park is the former estate of Colonel Robert R. McCormick and is located in Wheaton, Illinois. Each year, more than 350,000 visitors enjoy Cantigny’s events, museums, gardens, trails and open spaces.
