MORRIS WEIL MANSION. Morris Weil was an immigrant from France, a bank founder, and a leading supporter of his synagogue. He built this neoclassical house in 1902 at Seventeenth and C Streets. A Lincoln millwork company proudly advertised that it supplied the porch with its colossal Corinthian columns. The house is now a bed-and-breakfast.<br />
