Known as Rookwooods, this was the home of Chicago businesswoman and philanthropist Helen Culver, who provided for the funding of Chicago's Hull House in 1889 by first renting and later giving to Jane Addams the 1856 Italianate house still standing on Halsted Street on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus. Rookwoods reflects the architecture of the Hull House complex, which was also designed by Pond and Pond.
