Volunteer at Mayslake Peabody Estate

Mayslake Peabody Estate's volunteers assist staff by helping 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, Peabody family, and Franciscan Order of Friars Minor. Estate garden volunteers work to re-establish the lush grounds around Mayslake Hall and maintain formal landscaping.

Mayslake Peabody Estate is located at Mayslake Forest Preserve in Oak Brook.
