Historically important and architecturally unique, the Reddick Mansion anchors  Washington Square, the site of the first Lincoln-Douglas Debate.  Built in 1855, this lovely 22-room Italianate mansion was possibly the most expensive and ornate private home built in Illinois before the Civil War.

Take a step back into the 19th century and visit the Reddick Mansion, where numerous rooms have been restored to their previous grandeur.
