Located on Chicago's famed Gold Coast and completed in 1917, this magnificent mansion was once home to Eleanor Robinson Countiss, heiress to the Diamond Match Company fortune. The building was patterned after a chateau from the grounds of Versailles and is only one of a few of the lake front mansion that remain. Today it is home to the International Museum of Surgical Science which depicts the history, development, and advancement of surgery and other health related fields. It has an extensive collection of exhibits ranging from surgical procedures and equipment to the history of polio. It even has a replica of a 1900's apothecary shop.
