La Fox is an unincorporated community in Blackberry Township, Kane County, Illinois, USA. The community is located 4 miles west of Geneva and 5 miles east of Elburn. It serves as a station on Metra's Union Pacific/West Line.

History

La Fox was established about 1859 on the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad which was built through the area in 1854. The community was first named "Kane Station" but was renamed "La Fox" when the post office in present-day Geneva was moved to present-day La Fox.
