Walker & Gillette, 1926

For more than 70 years, the Consulate General of France has been located at this prestigious address. This handsome town house was built in 1925 for Charles E. Mitchell, president of National City Bank. Together with his wife, he designed their Renaissance-inspired home as a place for culture, particularly for literature and music. The French Consulate is one of the jewels of France's historic properties in the United States and in the world.
