In late 1912 the organization purchased the Brookline Farm--more than 1,000 acres along the then-unpaved Lincoln Highway between Batavia and North Aurora on the west side of the Fox River, about 40 miles west of Chicago.

On Sunday, July 27, 1913, several thousand Moose men and women (for the Women of the Moose received formal recognition that year as the organization's official female component) gathered under a rented circus tent toward the south end of the new property and placed the cornerstone for Mooseheart. The first 11 youngsters in residence were present, having been admitted earlier that month; they and a handful of workers were housed in the original farmhouse and a few rough-hewn frame buildings that had been erected that spring.


Mooseheart's construction proceeded rapidly over the next decade, but barely kept pace with the admissions. The student population was nearly 1,000 by 1920. Mooseheart's student population would reach a peak of 1,300 during the Great Depression. Housing was often "barracks" style. Mooseheart officials now consider the campus' ultimate maximum capacity as no more than 500.) Still, by the Twenties, Davis and his Moose colleagues thought the fraternity should do more--this time for aged members who were having trouble making ends meet in retirement. (A limited number of elderly members had been invited to live at Mooseheart since 1915.)


In 1922, the Moose began to build Moosehaven, a facility for retired Moose, as an adjunct to Mooseheart.
