Located in Wheaton, Ill., this sprawling, 500-acre park is where families wander through nature, get lost in history, play golf at an award-winning course, attend a big band concert, tag monarch butterflies, make a snow globe, take classes, introduce children to the age-old custom of afternoon tea, attend a wide variety of special programs and events --in short, spend quality time together.
Cedarville is a village of 750. As the birthplace of Jane Addams, first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize and founder of Chicago's Hull-House, we have a large exhibit on the Addams family, including her father, a state senator and personal friend of Lincoln. In addition we have other permanent and changing local exhibits. This year we started a series of publically-attended programs on local history. We sponsor several village festivals each year.
