Downtown Chicago’s Old Row Houses to be Saved

Good news for Chicago’s love of history!

Last month, Chicago’s Commission on Landmarks made a recommendation to create a new Near North landmark district to preserve 15 old mansions, row houses, and multi-flat buildings. Near North Side is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in the city.

“These remaining 1870s and 1880s buildings represent what the area looked like just after the Chicago Fire, when Michigan Avenue was known as Pine Street,” Ward Miller of Preservation Chicago tells Curbed. “The neighborhood was once lined with these high-quality row houses.”
