Middaugh Mansion

Clarendon Hills

 

Built 1892

 

The only building in

Clarendon Hills listed on

the National Register of
Historic Places was

demolished June 2002.

Salvage operations on the

1892 Middaugh Mansion

began this spring after

village officials refused to

assist in the building's

relocation to another site.

 
 

This village refusal occurred  despite the efforts of a local preservation group that raised more than $400,000.  The 20-room Queen Anne-style residence was demolished by the adjacent Notre Dame Roman Catholic church, which is building a modern facility nearby. The mansion was built by Henry C. Middaugh, a founding father of Clarendon Hills. It featured a soaring cupola, finely detailed woodwork, stained glass windows and a spacious ballroom. Its site will be occupied by 16 new parking spaces.
