Outdoor Spaces

The Armour House is the perfect venue for your wedding, reception, corporate event, or another special occasion, large or small. With stunning indoor and outdoor spaces, the facility offers several options for a unique experience within a historic venue.

The Armour House is located at Lake Forest Academy, a private boarding school for grades 9-12, located 40 miles north of Chicago. Established in 1857, the original estate was built at the turn of the 20th century and the original landscape was designed by the acclaimed Chicago landscape architect Jen Jensen. The 162-acre campus features many unique settings such as the pagoda and fountain in the formal gardens.

In recognition of the beautiful landscaping, this past year, Lake Forest Academy received a 2013 Green Star Honor Award in the category of School Grounds, by the Professional Grounds Management Society.
