Built in 1850 by James A. Chapman. This Roman Revival home has a stuccoed facade and has six large Corinthian columns. The Italianate embellishments were added after 1877. The house was given to the Historic Columbus Foundation. In 2016, the home was acquired by great grand daughter, Dina Woodruff, and faithfully restored to it’s original grandeur.

We’re proud that Illges House is on the historic registry. And thanks to the meticulous and loving restoration in 2017, the home will stand as a beautiful example of architectural design and construction from another time and era..
