Historic Abbott House for Sale

You can live in the historic Abbott House at 4605 Hermitage...if you have two million to spare. It was built in 1891 by Dr. Wallace Abbott, founder of Abbott Labs. See the listing with many interior images here and the historic image and brief history we posted in 2007.

And here it is! Goodness, I feel like a teenager walking to school or my friends house or the In & Out grocery store that was next to Como's Pizzeria.. this house was part of my daily commute for 20 years! It stood out like a sore thumb bordered by a block of small shops and a large apartment building on Wilson, while Hermitage remained a residential block. I always wondered what it was and who lived there, it went through several paint changes and at some point a large fence was built around it. Now that I live out in the burbs, I fondly recall what an interesting and diverse neighborhood I grew up in.. walking by the American Indian Center then the Abbott Hospital to meet my mother at Ravenswood Hospital everyday before heading to McPherson Elementary... great to reminisce.
