Summer Garden Stroll
The Preservation Foundation invites you to a late afternoon garden stroll in a beautiful garden in the heart of historic Lake Forest. Enjoy the spacious two-acre grounds on which Edwin Chapin built an elegant English Tudor country house in 1887. This peaceful estate was later named Shadow Lawn by the second owner, C.
