Haskell Playhouse


A Victorian-style playhouse built for the daughter of Dr. William A. Haskell, a physician and one of the wealthiest residents of Alton, as a present for his daughter Lucy's fifth birthday in 1885.

This Queen Anne-style playhouse was built for Lucy J. Haskell, daughter of Dr. William A. and Florence H. Haskell. The playhouse was an exact replica of the family home. The Haskell's gave the estate to the City of Alton for educational & recreational purposes. The playhouse is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places and can be visited in Haskell Park.
