Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Judge Chase House/Mt. St. Clair/Mt. Alverno (Jannan Apartment), 262 North Bluff Boulevard; 1859 and 1869.The building is a good local example of the Second Empire Style. Built in 1869 as the house for Judge C. W. Chase, it incorporated an earlier structure of 1859. In 1893, the building was purchased for use as a school, Mt. St. Clair. With relocation of the school to 400 North Bluff Boulevard, the building became a home for the aged. It was sold to a private party in 1971, and converted to apartments. A tower is centrally located in the east façade to denote the main entrance. Architectural features of note on the brick building include roof soffit brackets and stylized arched windows. Later alterations include a rear addition and a modern aluminum entry canopy, now badly damaged, on the east.
