DescriptionThe photograph shows a three story, brick home with a tower, several balconies and awnings. There are wrought iron railings around the top floor of the tower and in front of several other windows on the second floor. There is a car parked beside it and a pedestrian standing nearby. The home was built in 1880 for Edward Easton , a grain broker and president of the Peoria Board of Trade. Second Empire style home was designed by Charles Ulricson. It cost $30, 000 to build and was said to be the most modern home in the city. It was converted into a funeral home in the 1940's, then to a bed and breakfast inn, Easton Manor, in the mid 1990's. Since 1998 it has housed the offices of Converse Marketing.
