Illinois Stories: Elgin Cottrell House

One of Clarksville Missouri’s most unique attractions is the historic Elgin Cottrell House. Richard Cottrell has modeled and decorated the house to an exquisite example of American Victorian which would have been its design during the American Civil War. The house was recently featured on the Springfield, Illinois PBS show Illinois Stories.

Last year I organized a brunch for friends with him and it was one of my highlights for the year.
