Mayslake Peabody Estate's volunteers assist our heritage interpreters teach about the majesty of Mayslake Hall, the former home of coal baron Francis Stuyvesant Peabody. Volunteer docents lead tours of the Tudor-revival-style building and describe life at the estate in the early 1920s. Research volunteers uncover exciting information about the Potawatomi, the Peabody family and the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor. Estate garden volunteers work to re-establish the lush grounds around the hall and maintain formal landscaping.
Contribute to the cultural and historical significance of the hall and surrounding forest preserve, and be a Mayslake volunteer. For information about volunteering, contact Volunteer Services at 630-933-7233 or email@example.com.
Mayslake Peabody Estate is located at Mayslake Forest Preserve in Oak Brook.
