Franzosenbusch, a mid-nineteenth century community of German immigrants, was centered around the crossroads of 22nd Street and Wolf Road.  The name Franzosenbusch is German for “Frenchman’s Woods”.  The different construction periods of the Prairie House depict more than 150 years of human history against the backdrop of Wolf Road Prairie Nature Preserve.
