This tranquil setting, tucked into a wooded area crowning Cooper Mountain, is one of THPRD's most unique properties. The 68-acre property, constructed for Belle Ainsworth Jenkins and her husband Ralph more than 100 years ago, was purchased in 1975.
The buildings and grounds represent a vanishing lifestyle; they have been preserved and maintained by the Park District as a service to residents, who enjoy its many benefits, including: trails, a learning garden, exquisite gardens, and indoor-outdoor locations suitable for private events.
