The mansion was built in 1891 for Patrick Haley, an Irish immigrant / Mayor of Joliet and industrialist. Situated on a corner near downtown Joliet the residential structure has stood for over 100 years. Due to the smaller Victorian rooms and a need for open floor space to serve larger
wedding banquets the owner had utilized a temporary tent structure directly adjacent the mansion. After a number of successful years it was decided to add a dramatic permanent structure for banquets up to 300 people.
Careful studies were undertaken to design an addition that would not overwhelm the original H.H. Richardson style building. The solution sought to create an elevation that emulates key features of the mansion while introducing a new conservatory component for interest.
