This classic example of Renaissance Revival architecture was constructed in 1902 by master builder John Young of the finest materials, including tile roof, copper gutters, and brick walls with limestone base.  Set on a bluff, 200 feet above the Mississippi River just above the dam and hydroelectric plant at Keokuk, Iowa, the home was designed to take full advantage of the dramatic river views from almost every room.  The property extends all the way down the thickly wooded hillside toward the river and is located near the crest of the hill on Keokuk’s famous Grand Avenue, which boasts an impressive collection of stately turn-of-the-century homes.  The entire neighborhood was designated a National Historic District in 2003.
