MONTICELLO, Ill. (WCIA) — Allerton Park is celebrating the completion of a new entrance to the mansion. Crews worked on it for five months.
Monday, a ribbon-cutting ceremony unveiled the Rathje Entrance. The family donated $1 million to pay for the project.
The park’s director says it will make it easier for people to get to the mansion. The Rathjes were the first to drive down the new path after the ceremony.
It’s now open to the public.
