TitleLake View House
DescriptionCaption: "The Lake View House (Permission Mr. James J. Wilson and Chicago Historical Society)". From text: ""There was also a hotel, called the Lake View House, having been opened on July 4, 1854, occupying a site at the northwest corner of what is now designated Grace Street and Sheridan Road. This had been built by James H. Rees and Elisha E. Huntley, and was, without a doubt, the first hotel erected in close proximity to the Lake, and to demonstrate that the North Shore was the locality, par excellence, as a summer abiding place. This hostelry, undoubtedly sheltered sufferers from the fire. It passed through many vicissitudes, until the year 1890, and then was torn down..." Photograph is undated but appears to have been taken in the 1880s.
