Here is a picture of the David C. Cook mansion after it was turned into a retirement center.

Here is a picture as it was originally built.

In 2010 the retirement center was shut down by the city and later foreclosed upon by the bank. Click here to read a newspaper article about the closing.

In 2012 the bank sold a lot of the fancy interior details to Urban Remains in Chicago.
