Chicago Book Publisher To Buy, Move Into Buena Park Mansion
Some great news about the Waller Mansion at Buena and Clarendon! This century-old beauty has been purchased by and will be the new home of Chicago independent publisher Haymarket Books. The sale was made possible through the generosity of the Lannan Foundation, "a family foundation dedicated to cultural freedom, diversity and creativity."
Even better, Haymarket says it wants to turn one of the ground floor rooms into a reading room for the public while utilizing the rest of the building as offices for its staff.
Haymarket would like to get to know its new neighbors. Representatives from the company will be at Buena Park Neighbors' General Meeting on Monday to introduce themselves and answer questions.
