Chicago's West Rogers Park Interesting Real Estate

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker 475.140531

We went for a long walk through Chicago's West Rogers Park and viewed some classic 1920's Real Estate including streets of the Classic Chicago Bungalow. This was a very fun time that also included the Indian Boundary ParkIndian Boundary Park, located at 2500 W. Lunt Ave. Chicago IL 60645.

The West Rogers Park area is also known as West Ridge.

I want to quote the Chicago Park District to describe this wonderful place that is really worth seeing. On this Fall day it was stunning and I took a bunch of photos that I will share with you.

"The Ridge Avenue Park District began acquiring land for Indian Boundary Park in 1915. Richard F. Gloede, a designer of North Shore estate landscapes, developed an early plan for the park. In the mid-1920s, the Ridge Avenue Park District opened a small zoo, one of only two zoos in Chicago and initially housing only a lone black bear.

West Rogers Park or West Ridge

 

The 1929 Tudor-Revival field house designed by architect Clarence Hatzfeld features Native American-themed ornament inspired by the park's name. Indian Boundary Park is unusual in that its eastern lawn flows seamlessly into the front yards of neighboring apartment buildings. This park feature was so well-received that in the 1960s the Chicago Park District closed off part of adjacent Estes Avenue as well."

In 2005 Indian Boundary Field house was designated a Historical Landmark by the City of Chicago and is also listed in the National Register of Historical Places.

We took a long walk through the park and there were beautiful flowers and prairie grass trough out Indian Boundary Park. After wards we walked all around the different blocks of the area as I photographed the classic jumbo Chicago Bungalow and Tudor style homes. A few people were also walking on this day and were very friendly to us.

If you get a chance check this are of Chicago out. It is really interesting. If you have any questions or become interested in the area call us at (800) 858-7917.

Hi Noah Seidenberg - Love the video! There are so many wonderful areas of Chicagoland that most people don't know about.  I have always loved the brick architecture. Something that does not work is earthquake prone SoCal!

Noah as I have commented before I take a 3 - 4 mile walk everyday, and then do 2 miles on the treadmill every night.  I would love to take one of those long walks in West Rogers Park.

Good morning Noah.  We recently had a former agent move from here to a suburb somewhere near Chicago.  He did not ask or I would have sent him to you....  Sigh
