1920 census, Will County, Joliet, Western Ave., ED169, line 82:
"The thing that makes this house so significant is the free forms the architect used to create the exquisite exterior. While the structure is generally classified as Victorian, its delightful castle-like gingerbread look and variety of exterior Dutch and Moorish treatments earn the house extra architectural high marks.
Aesthetically, with a slender main turret and two decorative shingled window column turrets, it is extremely easy on the eye, which cannot be said of many elaborate painted ladies. Melody Hochevar, who is a historic home specialist who renovated her own historic home, called Hennebry House "one of the three best and most unique historic homes in its neighborhood."
Hennebry House is a two-story with attic with four bedrooms and
approximately 3,000 square feet of space, counting its three enclosed porches.
The house has 12 rooms, including a music room, parlor and huge formal dining
room. The original walnut curved staircase is breathtaking."
