The Mansion


in the 1860s, Madame Lou Harper ran "The Mansion" at what was then 219 Monroe (now 228 W. Monroe), the finest and most elegant brothel in pre-Fire Chicago. The "twenty beautiful young ladies" (as described on Madame Harper's business card) wore evening gowns and were never drunk. No red light illuminated the entryway, and gentlemen without proper attire and manner were not admitted under any circumstance.

The Mansion's elegance was not matched in Chicago until the opening of the Everleigh Club in the 1890s.
