Join us for a guided tour of the Victorian home of Naperville’s earliest entrepreneurial family. Built of brick and stone, the home showcases the products of Martin's limestone and brickwork business. Designed by Aurora, Illinois, architect James Mulvey. In 1883, George Martin II commissioned the design and construction of a two-story, 12-room brick residence in Naperville, Illinois. By the summer of 1884, Martin and his wife, Sibelia, moved into their new home with their four children, Elizabeth, Katherine, George III, and Caroline. They named the home Pine Craig.
