Help Us Restore Mayslake

Support a Place for Art and History in DuPage

Mayslake Peabody Estate is a DuPage community space for art, theater and historical programs. This more than 100-year-old property hosts a variety of cultural programs, theater performances and restoration-in-progress tours throughout the year. 

The Forest Preserve District has already completed several restoration projects — including the hall’s living room, areas of the main library, solarium and a few exterior features — at Mayslake, making them accessible to our visiting public. Private donations and a few state grants helped fund these projects, but so much more is needed to return this building to its functional splendor!

We do all we do with the support of Forest Preserve District tax dollars and people like you who care about the arts and cultural history.

Join hundreds of engaged community members working to preserve this beautiful and historic building as a space to experience cultural offerings at Mayslake Forest Preserve. Make your tax-deductible gift today!

A gift to the Friends of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County is tax-deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
