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.
