1881, Robert S. Roeschlaub? 1828 Illinois St. (southeast corner of Virginia St.)

This two-to-three-story random-coursed native granite house is built on a promontory overlooking the town. Posing as a medieval castle, it has round towers on the south corners, the smaller tower on the west having a conical stone cap. A heavily crenelated parapet surrounds the roof beneath two brick chimneys with corbeled throats.
