Mt. Hope Farm was created by Col. E. Parmelee Prentice, a Chicago lawyer, and his wife, Alta Rockefeller Prentice, daughter of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. In 1910, the Prentices purchased four large farms and several smaller parcels to create a single holding of approximately 1400 acres. In the late 1930's and 40's, Mount Hope Farm was one of the outstanding experimental farms in the country, contributing to agricultural genetics.

The buildings are made of stone in the French country style.
