About the Prairie Avenue Gallery and the Keith House
Prairie Avenue Gallery was founded in the mid-1980s by Joy Darrow in the Prairie Avenue Historic District. The gallery had been dormant after her death in 1996, but in 2009 her daughters Marcy and Tracy Baim reopened the gallery as an eclectic showcase.
|The Keith House at 1900 S. Prairie Ave. was built in 1870.|
Completed in 1870, the Keith House was built and owned by Elbridge G. Keith. Elbridge, along with his two brothers (O.R. and Edison) opened a very successful millinery business in Chicago. Elbridge Keith later helped found the Metropolitan National Bank and served as its first president. It was one of the grandest homes on Chicago's historic Prairie Ave.
