- The date—Sunday, December 8, 2013.
- The time—2pm to 4 pm.
- The place—Lake Forest’s Frank Hibbard Estate—never before open for not-for-profit events!
The Lake Forest Preservation Foundation invites members and their guests to share our success in protecting the historic visual character of Lake Forest during this holiday season.
In 1905, the well-respected Chicago architect, George Lyon Harvey, was commissioned to design a home for the 21-acre Frank Hibbard estate. Frank, of Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Company, was a hardware wholesaler that later became known as the True Value Hardware store chain. The house is classic Spanish Colonial Revival with stucco exterior and Terracotta roof. The interior has an English Tudor motif. This estate was transformed by famed architect Stanley D. Anderson in the late 1920s as part of the Deerpath Hill Estates development. This estate home was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006 as a satellite property in the Deerpath Hill Estates: an English Garden Development in Lake Forest. Today, the house ranks as a significant contribution to Lake Forest’s diverse and interesting architecture.
