Fischer Farm is believed to be one of the oldest remaining homesteads in the county. The Fischers established the home around the year 1838. Through the years, the Fischers built barns and a large farm house in 1920. The five acres of land at Fischer Farm is a Bensenville Park District park. The land just north of the cabin has been left untouched and is valued for its original seedbeds. This unchanged landscape is what settlers peered upon when they arrived in the area. Fischer Woods is a rare forest preserve with the remnants of prairie, wetland and woodland ecosystems.
The mission of Fischer Farm, based off of the mission of the Bensenville Park District, is to enhance the quality of life through the preservation of our local and natural history, and through recreational opportunities for all to enjoy. Program shall promote the awareness of the historical and ecological significance of the site. The Bensenville Park District in partnership with the DuPage County Forest Preserve has been working to restore the property and land. We invite you to come and enjoy this piece of history!
