700 East Broadway. Built in 1913 by attorney John Brown on the site of the old home of Alexander Young, MC’s first professor of Greek and Hebrew. Tudor-style home with Prairie School influences, designed by a Peoria architect. The building cost $60,000 to construct.
Originally contained 6 fireplaces and a large game room in the basement. Brown, distraught over the death of his wife, committed suicide in the house in 1920. It became the property of his law partner who deeded it to Monmouth College in 1931, which converted it to a Fine Arts Building. In 1938, the Music Department moved in. It was extensively remodeled for an administration building in 1957.
