Cook Mansion B&W

Built in 1879 this mansion is in back of my favorite rose garden. Although this home is in Lake County, it was the summer home for Ansel Cook for whom Cook County was named. The city of Chicago is located in Cook County - I live in Cook County but very near the road that divides Cook County from Lake County. Some days it's a tie as to which county is more corrupt! LOL This is for the B&W challenge which always need entries.
