    The Georgian-style residence was commissioned by Emily Ryerson three years after surviving the sinking of the Titanic.

    Emily Ryerson’s home was part of a commission by a creative social community for notable figures in the Chicago society of the time who planned to have their home on the corner at North Lakeview and Wrightwood avenues.

    ‘Ryerson was described as a resilient character, for even after the two significant losses in her life she maintained an indefatigable, positive humor,’ a landmark designation report reads. 

    ‘She would find company among the artists, designers, and architects of her children’s generation and become the social leader of the Lakeview Row Houses from her corner home at 2700.’

    During World War I, Ryerson turned her large house into a home for the sick and arranged hospital beds for children in her living room. 

    Ryerson married for a second time in 1927, after meeting financial advisor Forsythe Sherfesse while touring China. 

    The couple sold the impressive estate in 1930 and moved to New York. Ryerson died in 1939 aged 66.
