The home was built in 1894 for the owner of the Brass & Copper Foundry and later owned by the president of Illinois Steel Company. The charming back coach house was built in 1966 and is a wonderful rental opportunity or space for guests. The home was entered into the historic structures survey in 1972 and has been lived in and lovingly maintained by the same family for a 1/4 of a century. Now is your chance!
