ELAWA FARM is a public-private partnership dedicated to the preservation and stewardship of a unique combination of natural setting, designed landscapes and buildings of architectural and historic significance.
In 1998, the Cityof Lake Forest acquired a 16-acre parcel of land, including the original farm complex buildings that were part of an early 20th century gentleman's farm, known as ELAWA FARM. Adjacent to ecologically significant Middlefork Savana, this purchase created an opportunity for a unique partnership of public and private organizations to collaborate in the preservation and use of this property.
