Built in 1850 by architect Francis Costigan as his private residence. Situated on a lot only 22 feet in width this home is a showcase of his talent. The house includes a thirty foot long drawing room, curved doors, and 13 foot high ceilings in the parlors. The front door is a solid wood pocket door.
Costigan was the architect who designed both the Lanier Mansion and Shrewsbury- Windle house, as well as several other buildings in Indianapolis that are no longer standing.
