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: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.
