The Lehmann Mansion The Lehmann Mansion is a Magnificently Renovated Historical Landmark for Weddings, Cocktail Receptions, Corporate Events and Private Parties. The Mansion and Beautiful Heated or Air Conditioned Four Season Tent accommodates 25-400 guests!

Located on Sun Lake, Edward John (son of Ernst Johann Lehmann, 1849-1900) and his second wife Florence and their three sons, built a summer home known as "The Cottage" at Longwood Farm in 1912, just north of his father's mansion (located at what is now One Hope United). The second generation Lehmann home, now known as "The Mansion", combines several architectural styles, but it reminds visitors of the Old South. It originally had 10 bedrooms, 9 porches, 8 bathrooms, 3 living rooms, 3 kitchens, a dining room and a wine room. There was a barn which housed his horses from around the world. Edward John died in his home in Chicago on October 12, 1954. His sole surviving son, Robert, took over Lehmann Estates. After Florence died in 1964, the Estate was purchased by a developer, but his proposed development was rejected. Sun Lake and 527 acres were then purchased by the Lake County Forest Preserve. In July 2001, the Village of Lake Villa purchased the Lehmann Mansion and 60 acres, with plans to restore the mansion. An addition was constructed in 2004 adding a new kitchen, an elevator to the second floor and new restrooms. The newly renovated courtyard, complete with garden statues and fountain, makes a beautiful location for events. The Lehmann Mansion currently can be rented for weddings, banquets, meetings, seminars, private parties and much more. For more information: www.lehmannmansion.com The Lehmann Mansion can be viewed for tours or more information Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm. Tours are also available Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays by appointment only.
