CHICAGO, Dec. 13, 2022 — TAWANI Property Management, a community investment arm of TAWANI Enterprises, announced today that it plans to close its historic vacation and event rentals including Lang House Chicago, Emil Bach House, and Lincoln Way on December 31, 2023. The closing of these unique homes will also be the closure of the organization’s hospitality division. All guest reservations will be honored until the end of 2023.
For eight years TAWANI Property Management Hospitality has been the proud partner of Lincoln Way in Franklin Grove, Illinois, as well as manager of Lang House Chicago and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Emil Bach House in Rogers Park. These beautiful historic homes have hosted many guests, families from around the globe, numerous wedding couples, and business and leisure travelers enjoying the best of the Midwest. TAWANI Enterprises periodically reviews and revises its business strategy to reflect changing marketplace conditions and identifies opportunities to improve efficiency and profitability.
“While it was not an easy decision, we feel that it is the best course of action for TAWANI,” said TAWANI Enterprises Inc., Founder, Colonel (IL) Jennifer N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired). “We’re proud of the work that our team has done in preserving these iconic historic homes in our state. Providing these homes as venues for our community has been gratifying, and we are grateful to our devoted hospitality staff for remaining committed to the properties through the end of next year.”
TAWANI will maintain its partnerships with the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and Frank Lloyd Wright Trust as options are evaluated for the future of Emil Bach House. TAWANI will also be reviewing options for Lang House Chicago, and working in partnership with the owners of Lincoln Way to plan for the next chapter of these very special homes.
“Over the last several years, our team has enjoyed hosting numerous weddings, family reunions, work gatherings, parties, retreats, vacations and guests,” said TAWANI Hospitality Director of Hospitality Operations, Carmen Korleski. “This final year of guest stays at our Chicago and Franklin Grove Illinois homes will be special for all of us. We look forward to serving our existing guests as well as new visitors through the end of 2023.”

Emil Bach House is an historic landmark and was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1915 for the Bach family. Located near the shores of Lake Michigan on Chicago’s north side, this iconic home points to future stylistic directions that the architect’s work would take, including the home’s contained geometry, efficient scale, and modern window designs.
