F.B. Henderson Residence, Elmhurst, IL (1901) (S.057)
Interior Images 2008.

These six interior images were photographed in 2008 for the resale of the Henderson Residence by Historic Homes Realty.  There are over 80 art glass windows, elegant woodwork, three brick fireplaces, and many original built-ins. The 27 foot long entry Hallway includes built-in seating and stippled ceiling finish. The original gas two light wall sconces were replaced by Art Glass prairie styled single vertical sconces.  All the radiators were encased with

   original and custom wood grill work.  The magnificent twelve foot wide brick fireplace is the center of the home. The octagonal Library includes built-in bookcases, and the matching octagonal Dining Room has built in cabinets and buffets. The hanging light fixture was replaced.
