Similar in plan and design to the Emmond house, the Robert Parker house is defined by bold, geometric forms. An octagonal turret stands adjacent to the entrance which is sheltered by a shallow overhanging eave. The entrance leads to an octagonal reception room, library, and dining room on the left. The second floor features four bedrooms and a bathroom. The house was originally commissioned by Walter and Thomas Gale, who owned several lots along Chicago Avenue. It was later purchased by Robert Parker.
