Martin Barbe was a prominent Chicago clothing manufacturer with the wholesale firm Barbe, Benedict & Goldman that specialized in cloaks and capes. Barbe’s residence, located on a large corner lot on South Prairie Avenue, was unique among Adler & Sullivan’s early houses. While other designs conformed to rowhouse prototypes, this was a completely detached modern country villa when it was built in 1884. Set back on its site, the home was defined by high gables, projecting window bays, and arches. The facade was a mix of brick, stone, wood, decorative terra cotta, ornamental sheet metal, and slate. The building was demolished in 1963.
