Rollin Furbeck Residence (1897), Oak Park, Illinois


The Rollin Furbeck Residence was constructed in 1897 of light tan brick and colored wood trim. The three-story fa├žade of the central pavilion makes it seem even taller on its site. The open “picture window” on the first floor contrasts with the recessed diamond-paned windows on the upper floors.
