Patten House (1898)

Highest position in Explore: #499


NRHP #06001018


Two years ago, Palatine citizens voted to save the house and use taxes for a

cultural center, but the Palatine Village Council voted against it. The house was recently put on the National Register.


The three-story Patten mansion was designed in the Victorian "Chateauesque" style in 1898 by architect Julius F. Wegman. It was the first in Palatine to have indoor plumbing. The property was put on the market by Patten's descendents. The price tag is just under a million. Sotheby's is selling it for readaptive use (community or cultural center or bed and breakfast). It is zoned for four buildable lots.
