The Fabyan Villa was home to Colonel George and Nelle Fabyan from 1905-1939. Riverbank, the name they bestowed upon their property, was initially their summer escape from Chicago. The estate features fountains, extensive gardens, swimming pools, a windmill, zoo and tennis courts. The Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie-style Museum contains the Fabyans' private collection of Asian artifacts, natural history specimens and original furniture. After the tour, visitors can stroll the Japanese Garden.
