Historic Migl House in La Grange

Migl House in La Grange by Russell Bennett

The Migl House was constructed in 1890 by the family of František Migl. Most of the construction materials were 1 x 12 long-leaf pine boards for the outside walls, beaded tongue-in-grove internal wallboards, tongue-and-groove boards for the flooring, wood shingles for the roofing and, of course, heavier timbers for the framing. The cost of the material for the house was approximately $350.00.
