Arcade Library Interior

Note the HH Hawley Stencls near the ceiling. The library contained more than 6,000 volumes, most being George Pullman's personal donation. Library cards cost $3.00 a year for adults and $1.00 a year for children. The library was housed in four elegant rooms in the NE corner of the second floor. These rooms had stained glass windows, chandeliers, Wilton carpets and upholstered furniture which gave the rooms the feel of a gentlemen's club. There was also an austere fifth reading room that was furnished plainly and had a separate entrance. This was for factory workers who might not feel comfortable in the other rooms. Evening classes for adults were held here and included classes in stenography, art, language, and literature. Bertha Ludlam, cousin of George M. was the librarian.

Beman - Alice N. Tomlinson Residence, 1904

Color photograph of Tomlinson residence at 5317 S. University, Chicago. The stone and marble facade of this home features stone brackets along the unusual gambrel roofline, with double bays on the first and second floors surrounded with a stone balcony. The tile roofs of the second floor bays hint that the original main roof was probably also tiles. The delicate carved tops of the porch marble columns is overwhelmed by the massive scale of the rest of the building. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.

Beman - Fifth Church of Christ Scientist, 1904

Color photograph by Linda Beierle Bullen, of Fifth Church of Christ Scientist at 4840 S. Dorchester, Chicago. Now known as Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, this building conveys majesty and scale. Though it has no pedimented focal point, the pedimented and pilastered double entrances, with a colonnated front porch, provide symmetry to an impressive facade. The original cast iron lighting fixtures remain. Fenced off and looking abandoned, the future of this Beman building seems uncertain. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.

Beman - First Church of Christ Scientist, 1897

Color photograph by Linda Beierle Bullen, showing First Church of Christ Scientist, 1897 at 4017 S. Drexel Boulevard, Chicago.

Beman - First Methodist Evangelical Church, 1887

Color photograph showing 1887 church, now known as United Methodist Church of Batavia, at 8 N. Batavia Avenue, Batavia. This early church shows Beman's affinity with east coast architects such as Richard Upjohn (whose studio he trained in) and H. H. Richardson. It's rusticated stone, bold arches, tower, round bays, and stacked roofline create a picturesque building in a style very different from Elim Luthern Church built only one year later. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.

Beman - John Griffith Residence, 1892

Color photograph of Griffith residence at 3806 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago. This imposing Chateau-style mansion has many features in common with the Kimball residence on Prairie Avenue, built about the same time. The stone house features a complex roofline with a stone bracketed tower, spires, gothic details, and round and faceted bays. Although far less opulent than the Kimball house, the chateau-style popularized by Solon Beman is clearly evident. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.

Beman - John S. Runnells Residence, 1896

Color Photograph of the Runnells house at 1525 N. State Parkway in Chicago. This refined roman brick and stone house is the epitome of elegance. Far from the fussy Queen Anne and elaborate French Chateau styles Beman had been creating for clients, here he mixes classical features with a premonition of prairie school details. In 1911 John Runnells was elected President of the Pullman Company when Robert Todd Lincoln resigned. He had been with the company since 1888, served as President of the Roseland State Bank in 1909, and remained President of the Pullman Company until 1922. "Solon S.

Beman - Second Church of Christ Scientist, 1899

Color photograph of Beman's Second Church of Christ Scientist, 1899, located at 2700 N. Pine Grove Avenue, Chicago. Upon seeing Beman's Merchant Tailor Building at the Columbian Exposition, Mary Baker Eddy commissioned Beman to build Christian Science churches. This is a fine example retaining a high degree of integrity and fine details. The colonnaded entrance with ionic capitals and pedimented roofline are typical elements of this classical style.

Beman - The T. B. Blackstone Memorial Library, 1902

Color photograph of this branch of the Chicago Public Library located at 4904 S. Lake Park Avenue, Chicago. This building owes a debt to Beman's Merchant Tailor Building at the World's Columbian Exposition.

Remaining are its beautiful bronze doors, elaborate terrazzo flooring, elegant glass dome, painted murals and many small interior details. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.

Beman - William W. Kimball Residence, 1890-1892

Color photograph of Kimball house at 1801 S. Prairie Avenue, Chicago. Perhaps, the most famous of Beman's extant residences, the Kimball house epitomizes his "chateau" style that was much imitated after this house. The picturesque house with its many turrets, bays, round balcomies, elaborate chinmeys, iron work and delicate stone carving is one of the few remaining original mansions on Chicago's original "Gold Coast". George Pullman's mansion originally stood directly across the street, to the north. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.
