An American Palace: Chicago's Samuel M. Nickerson House. An American Palace: ChicagoÕs Samuel M. Nickerson House, explores the rich and varied history of one of ChicagoÕs grandest Gilded Age residences. Commissioned by Chicago banker Samuel M.

Beautifully illustrated, this volume provides a comprehensive history and stunning photographic tour of the Samuel M. Nickerson house while firmly situating it within ChicagoÕs rich legacy of architectural and interior design.
