The Colvin House History
The Colvin House was designed by architect George Maher, who was a contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright. He used his signature style of Rhythm-Motif Theory on the mansion, utilizing triangles and tulips as motifs to create unique architectural elements. There are indoor and outdoor options that provide scenic views of Chicago’s Northside lakefront. The mansion is across the street from Lake Michigan, which can serve as a beautiful backdrop to any photo or wedding ceremony.
