Theurer-Wrigley Mansion

The Theurer-Wrigley Mansion symbolizes the architectural and historical significance of the Gilded Age in America. Located near Lincoln Park in Chicago, the home was designed by architect Richard Schmidt and completed in 1896. The Theurer-Wrigley Mansion was commissioned by Joseph Theurer, owner of the Schoenhofen Brewing Company. In 1911, the Wrigley family purchased the mansion. Owner of the home, William Wrigley Jr. would later buy the Chicago Cubs and increase his chewing gum empire. The family moved out of the home in 1930 after kidnappings and robberies became increasingly significant. Theurer-Wrigley Mansion was bought in 2018 for $4.65 million.
