The Preservation Foundation invites you to a late afternoon garden stroll in this peaceful garden in the heart of historic Lake Forest. Originally part of Howard Van Doren Shaw’s 1906 Ryerson estate, it now surrounds a stunningly beautiful David Adler home built in 1933. The three-acre property includes two ravines, which provide a dramatic accent to the formal gardens. Adler and landscape architect Ralph Griswold designed the gardens, which include a greenhouse from the 1933 World’s Fair. Reservations are required and can be secured by registering below or by calling the Preservation Foundation office at 847-234-1230. LFPF Members - $20.00, Non-members - $30.00.
On May 7th, the Foundation will hold its Annual Meeting and Preservation Awards at Gorton Community Center beginning at 2:00 PM followed by a special member and guest reception at a home on the historic Walden Estate. Location of the reception will be provided at the Annual Meeting.
The meeting and reception are free for members, but reservations are required. The fee for the reception for guests of members is $20 per person. Please use the link below to register. Any questions should be directed to the LFPF office at 847-234-1230.
