The Wrigleyville neighborhood has undergone significant change the past few years. Foutty will start in front of the ballpark, home of the Chicago Cubs, to discuss the marquee, park history and recent renovations. He’ll also highlight new developments across the street, to both the south and west, and share the stories of some older neighborhood buildings, including a firehouse beyond the left field wall.
Kent Foutty has been a docent since 2009 and gives eight different tours, including the Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruise aboard Chicago’s First Lady. In addition to giving tours, he is currently president of the CAC’s Docent Council, the governing body for CAC docent volunteers. He is a professor of accounting at Loyola University Chicago and lives on the North Side of Chicago.
