229 PERRY STREET
229 Perry Street was built in 1905 for Adolph Lueck and his wife, Margaret. Adolph was born in 1858 in Germany and immigrated to the United States when he was four years old. He married a Ms. Margaret Young who was also born in Germany in 1863. She immigrated to the United States with her family when she was one years old. They had two children, Margaret and Adolf August. Margaret was born in 1884 and Adolf was born in 1895 in Elgin. Margaret passed away in 1924 leaving Adolph the home. Adolph remarried to Rose Zeason, also of Germany, sometime between 1925 and 1930. Adolph passed away in 1937 with Rose passing away in 1940.
The Adolph and Margaret Lueck house is a contributing structure to the historic integrity of the area and is of the Free Classic sub-type of the Queen Anne style. One of its main characteristics is its gabled roof with lower cross gables with a recessed, shingled arch under the main and secondary gables. The home also exhibits a full-width, one-story asymmetrical porch that extends along one side wall. The porch displays simple columns with Doric capitals, a characteristic that is associated with the Free Classic sub-type.
