The Durant House Museum, located at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, is an 1843 brick farmstead built in a simple Greek Revival style. The house has been restored as a living history museum representing the lifestyle and the furnishings of the 1840's. A frame addition contains a kitchen and bathroom furnished to represent the Victorian era. As costumed guides, Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley, a volunteer organization, welcomes the public throughout the year.
Private and group tours are available all year, by appointment. Call (630) 377-6424. For more information, visit Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley at https://www.ppfv.org/durant-house-museum.
