118 N. Charter St.

Historically, this Outbuilding type was Dr. J.D. Knott's Garage built c. 1910 with slight Arts and Crafts influence.  An original courtyard wall remains between 112 an 122.  A half wall connects the garage to the main building.  The west elevation was originally exposed to the raised platform of the Illinois Traction System's nearby depot.  A hip roof wall dormer now has a single-light which extends down into the first story wall.  Slight Arts and Crafts influence is expressed through the clever use of mixed materials, which creates a very unique outbuilding and courtyard wall.
