1212 W. Moss Avenue, Peoria, Illinois 61606

 Built in 1868 in the Second Empire architectural style, the house has 11 rooms and contains a unique collection of objects from several Peoria families. In 1900 a colonial revival porch and porte-cochere were added, giving the home a grand Victorian appearance. Jean Morron acquired the property in 1953 and owned the house until her death in 1966.
