The Chicago YearsStephen A. Douglas became a Chicago resident in 1847, moving from central Illinois after his election as U.S. Senator. He intended to build on his lakeside property, named Oakenwald, a gentleman's estate including a mansion, stables, and a gardener's cottage. Political affairs in Washington consumed the senator, however, and only the cottage was ever built.
