This historic district is host to magnificent turn of the century homes which can qualify for property tax breaks when owners do rehab work. You’ll find Queen Anne Victorian, Dutch Colonial, Foursquare, and other vintage home styles here. Because most lots are larger than typical Chicago lots, you’ll find homes that are wider and more gracious than those on 25′ wide parcels.
