Own a piece of Chicago history--this rare opportunity offers historic tax incentives. Built in 1870 and designed by J.R. Roberts, the Keith House is a breathtaking property situated along Chicago's historic Prairie Avenue. The original "Gold Coast" in the late 19th century, the opulent Prairie Avenue was once home to the city's elite with legendary Chicago families from the Pullmans to the Fields calling the tree-lined avenue home. Named for banker and merchant Elbridge Keith, the Keith House is one of the few remaining original mansions in the heart of the Prairie Avenue Historic District. Today, the home sits along a secluded cul-de-sac just moments from bustling Downtown Chicago.
