The restoration of Brookside, formally the Bass Mansion at the University of Saint Francis earned an ARCHIE Award from the Architecture and Community Heritage Inc. (ARCH) of Fort Wayne.
The historic Bass Mansion is not only the cornerstone of the University of Saint Francis heritage, but one of the cornerstones of the history of Fort Wayne, Indiana as a center of commerce in the midwest. Conrad Schmitt Studios restoration of the historic Bass Mansion included period conservation and replication of the ornate decorative painting and stencil work.
