'Villa Turicum'

 'Villa Turicum', the Harold Fowler McCormick estate designed by Charles A. Platt between 1908-1918 in Lake Forest, Illinois.  McCormick, son of Cyrus H. McCormick of Lake Forest, was chairman of the board of International Harvester Company.  He was married to Edith Rockefeller from 1895-1921 (they divorced).  Click HERE for more on 'Villa Turicum' and HERE to see the house in ruin.  The residence was demolished in the early 1960s.
