The Growing Place

Historic Farm House
The Growing Place, Aurora

If coming from the north or I-88, you can take Kirk Rd./Farnsworth south to Montgomery Road and then three blocks east to the farm.
OR take Eola Road (both have exits on I-88) south to Ogden Avenue and west to Montgomery Road then right.

From the south, Route 59 to Ogden Avenue then west (left) to Montgomery Road north (right) works well.


The Growing Place has a retail nursery and a flower farm on Montgomery Road is just north of Ogden Avenue and Copley Hospital and 3.5 miles west of Westfield Fox Valley Shopping Mall.

In 2000, a historic farmhouse was moved to The Growing Place, Aurora. Its journey began around 1860 when A.T. Thatcher built the home after he came home from the gold rush. Today, it is the home of the Aurora location's Garden Treasures Gift Shop and it is landmarked by the city of Aurora.
