HPZS was selected by the Village of Orland Park to reinterpret and restore three historic properties including the Humphrey House Museum, an 1881 home listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the residence of Orland Park’s first mayor, John Humphrey. At the Humphrey House, HPZS is implementing upgrades to the ground floor to make the museum interior ADA accessible and providing new mechanical systems to accommodate museum storage on the second floor. The Stellwagen Farmhouse's original timber frame will be stabilized to welcome new visitors.
In addition, programs and special events will help highlights this important legacy of Orland Park’s heritage. HPZS is also producing a master plan of the 5-acre Boley Farm to accommodate walking paths with interpretive agricultural exhibits. The team is analyzing the existing structures, providing plans to stabilize the farm structures and infrastructure, and implement energy efficient design solutions to keep the historic site accessible for the community.
