Barnes House is the presidential residence at Illinois College and one of the seven buildings on campus that are more than 100 years old. Noted Chicago architect Howard Van Doren Shaw designed the home, which reflects the Colonial Revival style. It is named for Clifford W. Barnes, the college's fifth president, and continues to provide a setting for formal receptions, elegant dinners, and large gatherings of special guests, alumni, trustees, and others.
