Adolph Mueller House: Millikin's "White House"
The Herald & Review reports that the Marion Mahony-designed Adolph Mueller House (or No. 4 Millikin Place as it's know by architecture buffs in Decatur, IL) is back serving as Millikin University's "White House" for the school's fifteenth President, Patrick White and his wife, Chris.
The home served as the University's President's abode many years ago, but the school divested itself of the house after financial difficulties arose. Now it's been bought back by the University that is proud to see its return.
That pride will be on display, thanks to the attention brought one by a few tours from Chicago this year, thus helping to introduce the home and its nearby Prairie School neighbors to a wider audience of architectural appreciators. Follow the link to learn more. Read more.
