historic site

The Kenyon Farm with its rolling wooded hillsides and 25 acre pond ringed with wetland vegetation is located in the middle of a massive suburban expansion in the Village of South Elgin. A portion of an extensive archaeological site is on the property. It appears most of the east side of South Elgin was an Indian settlement reaching back over 1,000 years.

Kenyon Farm Forest Preserve in South Elgin is very simple and pleasant, with a small parking lot and paths not paved but mowed into the greenery. A small pond and several interesting trees.
