Built around 1840, the Ben Fuller House at Fullersburg Woods Forest Preserve in Oak Brook is the best example of “balloon-frame” construction in northeastern Illinois. The house was moved from its original site to Fullersburg Woods in 1981. Shortly before moving to the forest preserve, the house’s summer-kitchen wing was lost to a fire.
