Hall House

201 Garfield Rd, Harvard, IL 60033, USA
$439,900

Description

Hall House was built in 1903 by then Harvard Mayor, William D. Hall on a hill in the middle of town known as Hall’s Hill to the locals.  The architect who designed the home was Myron Hunt, a partner with Frank Lloyd Wright, at that time, in Chicago.  The Hall House is considered Prairie Style.  It has a low-pitched roof, wide overhanging eaves, details emphasizing horizontal lines and commonly adorned by massive, square porch-supports.  The stones used in the foundation and first story were gathered from farms north and south of Harvard. The second story was originally “pebble-dash”, or what is commonly known as stucco today. The original roofing material was cedar shingles dipped in green creosote, which were replaced by hand made tile in 1923.  There is a little of the original green shingling on the back, upstairs bedroom porch and on the entryway onto the flat portion of the roof from the third floor attic.

Hall House is conveniently located in Harvard, IL only an hours drive to Chicago, Milwaukee – WI and an hour thirty minutes to Madison – WI.  If you prefer not to drive to Chicago, the Metra commuter train is only about a quarter mile from the home – an easy 10 minute walk.  40 minutes west on 173 you can drive to Rockford and an hour thirty you can drive east to Gurnee.  Harvard is only 7 miles south of the WI border.
