The annual Lake Forest Preservation Foundation Benefit House & Garden Tour will feature a beautiful and historic area of the City called “The Heart of Old Lake Forest.”

These homes are located near the business district, Lake Forest College and the First Presbyterian Church—early developments in Lake Forest.  Some of the homes were constructed before the Chicago Fire, most were among the first homes built in Lake Forest, and several have been updated and expanded with sensitivity to Preservation. All are within walking distance of each other.
