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.
