4. Riddle House, 1924

A large brick house.
Frank Riddle, a prominent real estate operator and developer of this subdivision, was the original owner of this home. It was constructed in the Dutch Colonial Revival style, with the characteristic gambrel roof. Riddle was featured in a 1927 Beacon News series of brief sketches of men who had contributed to the development and growth of Aurora. A later owner was the Garbe family of Garbe Iron Works, Inc. A collector of antique cars, the family added garages to house their collection.
