In the early 20th century, the Kalo Arts Crafts Community House was home to a famous artists's colony that featured a "school within a workshop." Operated by Clara Barck Welles, founder of the Kalo Shop in Chicago, Park Ridge and New York, the home served as as a major commercial training facility for jewelry, metalwork and handicrafts during the height of the American Arts & Crafts movement.
