  Clarke House
by dlandt

Behind this house is a monument to the Ft. Dearborn massacre, where 95 settlers and soldiers were massacred as they were being evacuated. The house looks southern to me. It was built in 1836. Tours are available. It is at 18th and Indiana.

Address: 1800-1900 S. Prairie

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
