Elawa farm

Renowned architects David Adler and Alfred Hopkins designed Elawa Farm in 1917.  Originally built for one of Chicago’s oldest and most distinguished families, Elawa Farm is now in the care of the Elawa Farm Foundation, that aims to enrich the Lake Forest community and inspire appreciation for gardening, healthy living, and historic preservation.
