ARCHITECT: Albert E. Colcord

Designed by architect Albert E. Colcord of Chicago, William and Mary Vincent built this Craftsman Style home for their daughter Margaret as a wedding gift for her marriage to Ray Wolters. Mary Vincent had purchased the lot in 1882 for $600. When the home was completed a newspaper reported it was “very attractive and adds to the beauty of Cedar Street. ” The Craftsman style, made popular by Gusav Stickley, was intended to be practical and aesthetic. It has been called the best example of Craftsman Style in this neighborhood.
