These Old Houses
An Introduction to Chicago’s Vernacular Residential Architecture

Wednesday, June 28th , 6 – 8 pm
At LivingRoom Realty, 1530 W. Superior
Light refreshments served
Free!

LivingRoom Realty is pleased to host a panel discussion about the historic houses that make Chicago’s neighborhoods great.

Chicago is known for its masterpiece buildings by Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, and more. But the city’s architectural pedigree isn’t limited to the Loop. Although we sometimes take them for granted, the humble houses built by generations of anonymous Chicagoans have an even greater impact on our day-to-day quality of life, and tell the history of the city and its people.
