c. 1907 Prairie Style
Fabyan Villa Museum and Japanese Garden
You will also learn of the Fabyans' contributions to society, country and science, and the generosity they bestowed on residents of the Fox Valley Area.
Their Japanese Garden, first installed c. 1909, is still a tranquil oasis where history melds with nature and theory. This special site affords you the opportunity to simply enjoy a bit of harmony with nature, or to learn principles of Japanese gardening.
The major part of the Fabyan Estate is now the Fabyan Forest Preserve, part of Kane County Forest Preserve District in Illinois. The Villa is on the National Register of Historic Places.
