George W. Maher, 1909


Passersby on Sheridan Road have long wondered about this yellow brick, Prairie Style-inflected American Foursquare mansion. It had fallen into disrepair after years of neglect, but has now been restored and repurposed as a distinctive coworking and event space. While the exterior of the house is quite restrained, the interior features over-the-top plaster ornamentation that was most likely added in the 1920s—it resembles the decor found in the lavish movie palaces of the day. Colvin House was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1994.

Brief guided tours will be available throughout the day.
