Armour House @ Lake Forest Academy


Built by J Ogden Armour, heir to the Armour meat packing fortune, the estate was constructed between 1904 and 1908 under the guidance of architect Arthur Heun. The marble floor is inlaid with brass. The magnificent stairway was said to be built for Armour’s daughter Lolita, to descend on her wedding day. Our site provides a uniquely beautiful setting for your special event. The catering and events department is operated by Sodexho Services. The site can accommodate as many as 200 indoors and several hundred outdoor. Read more…

Armour House

I would like to take this opportunity to write you to express how much we loved having our daughter and son-in-laws wedding at “The Armour House”. Sodexo created special day for the bride, groom and their friends. Grace and Julie made the day very special for Melissa and Nick. The venue was so fabulous that words cannot describe how much we all enjoyed their day. From the moment we entered The Armour House to the time we packed up, the staff was superb, professional and always try to please everyone. As we made our rounds to greet each person, our guests from Kansas, Pittsburgh, Seattle and NY raved all night about the place and the food. They could not get over how wonderful the food was prepared and presented. Also, the stations were a great hit. It’s rare to hear at a wedding from all age groups the same comments over and over again, “this was the best wedding we have ever attended”. The one comment that stuck the most was, “This is the wedding of the century”. How appropriate when you know about the history of the Armour family.

The entire day was over and above our expectations. Grace, a special thank you to both you and Julie for keeping us relaxed during this entire planning process. Please feel free to give our names as a reference. When planning a wedding, there is no other venue or food and facility management company that can compete with Sodexo.
