Inscription.  This landmark structure has withstood time, owners, and many different uses. It remains remarkably intact today. The Jarrot Mansion was completed in 1810 for Nicholas Jarrot, a native Frenchman who achieved prosperity through trade, land, and law in frontier Cahokia. This building is the oldest brick house in Illinois.

An emphasis is placed on preserving the extensive original fabric of the Jarrot Mansion. Restoration is a solution when tested preservation measures fail.

"Old friends are worth keeping."
