French Heritage Society is proud to count Chicago as its newest chapter, bringing the total number of chapters in the U.S. to 11 with an additional chapter in Paris.  These chapters each play a vital role in support of FHS’ mission to protect the rich architectural legacy of France on both sides of the Atlantic. Their programs engage the local community while raising important funds for critical restoration projects.

We commend the Co-Chairs of the Chicago Chapter, Odile Compagnon and Pascale Kichler, for spearheading this initiative and bringing FHS’ mission to this extraordinary city. Their inaugural event took  place on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019. We are pleased to welcome new members from Chicago into the fold. If you are interested in becoming involved with the FHS Chicago Chapter or learning more about their events, please contact our New York Office.


FHS has  already been active in Chicago thanks to its Student Exchange Program with French interns at the Chicago Botanic Garden (above) and U.S. students from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago who worked on the 500th anniversary commemorative project at the Château de Chambord in the Loire Valley.
