Published Aug. 6, 2019

While the beautiful and stately buff brick home at 2929 W. Highland Blvd., in the Concordia Neighborhood, is, these days, called the Gettelman Mansion, that name obscures the fact that it exists not because of any Gettelman family member, but, rather, because of a man named William Starke.
