A Century at Elawa Farm

Elawa Farm June through October

Traveling: June at The Private Bank (920 S. Waukegan Rd., Lake Forest); other sites TBA

Built in 1917, Elawa Farm is the truest remaining testament to Lake Forest’s country estates, an era that shaped our city’s character. Elawa’s stunning architecture stands as a lasting monument to that period and to its two preeminent architects, Alfred Hopkins and David Adler. The stories of the Armour and Carroll families who called the farm home illustrate Lake Forest’s rural past. The current stewardship of the restored farm and garden by a public-private partnership exemplifies our community’s present values.
