Historic Profile: The John G. Gluek House marks the transition from the popular Queen Anne style of architecture in the nineteenth century to a "colonial" or NeoGeorgian form that became fashionable in the early twentieth century. While its ornamentation and front porch are derived from predominantly Georgian prototypes, the massing is consistent with Queen Anne architecture. The main house, designed by William H. Keyan, was the home of John G. Gluek, the son of Gottileb Gluek. Gottileb founded the Gluek Brewing Company on the banks of the Mississippi River. It grew to become one of the largest distributors of beer in the Midwest. John Gluek acted as the secretary-treasurer of the family business until his death in 1908.
