Fact of the Day

The original Playboy Mansion was a 70-room residence in Chicago at 1340 North State Street. It was built in 1899 for George Swift Isham and acquired by Hugh Hefner in 1959.

For a period in the 1970s, Hefner divided his time between the Chicago mansion and the Mansion West, moving full time to the California mansion in 1974.

The Chicago mansion boasted a brass plate on the door with the Latin inscription, Si Non Oscillas, Noli Tintinnare ("If you don't swing, don't ring").
