Designed by Henry Jensen for Fred and Christie Ackemann, this home has 18 carved friezes, and 11 examples of stained glass which have survived since 1892. Ackemann's was once the hub of retail in downtown Elgin, and the Ackemann family is still prominent in Elgin, though their store is no longer in operation.
