The Fort Sheridan Historical Society was formed to honor, support, educate, and promote the Fort and its history from the late 1880’s to present.

Our goal is to provide useful information about the Fort and its history to former and current residents and those interested in the history of the Fort and the North Shore.   Click here for more information about the Society.

Please explore this site to find much more information about the Fort, its history, and how to best plan and enjoy a visit to the Fort.  To encourage further research and sharing of Fort information, please consider joining or donating to the Historical Society.

George Patton is presumed to have lived at 3655 Leonard Wood E when he was stationed at the Fort as a Lieutenant. The only proof of this, however, is apparently a single photo showing him sitting on that porch.
