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. With a grade school of limited campus on the west, the bicycle trail on the east and a wetlands and landfill to the south, this center of quiet native habitat can only increase in neighborhood importance, value and use. A portion of an extensive archeological 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 is located on Middle Street, east of the Fox River.
