Built in 1924 at a cost of $40,000, this Prairie style mansion has probably endured fewer changes than most. Many of the wall coverings and fixtures are original. Walnut and mahogany woodwork, two wall murals believed to be by the nationally recognizedartist, Mathias Alten, an indoor water fountain, a walk-in safe, and original tiled bathrooms display the workmanship and the "money" of the day. It was home to Frank and Irene McKay (owner of the McKay Lumber Company and McKay Towers). Mathias Alten murals in the sun room and basement.
