Cyrus McCormick Mansion information
The industrialist's 1893 neoclassical home, designed by New York architect Stanford White, is one of the Gold Coast's standouts. McCormick and his family had the whole place to themselves, but it’s now divided up into condos. It’s still the high-rent district – a three-bedroom, three-bathroom unit goes for $1.75 million (washer and dryer included).
