Own a Piece of History!
The old Marshall Field Jr. house at 1919 S. Prairie Ave. is for sale. Well, that’s not quite true. The venerable old mansion was restored and converted into six luxury condominium units in 2007. One of those luxury condos is up for sale.
A Home Fit for a Field
The home was originally built for William Murray in 1893. In 1902, Marshall Field Jr. commissioned the legendary Daniel H. Burnham to enlarge it. Just a few doors away from Marshall Field Sr. (1905 S. Prairie), Jr.’s mansion was one of the largest on Prairie Ave.
