Jackson Park Highlands

Located in a small northern pocket of the South Shore community area, Jackson Park Highlands "is a registered Chicago Landmark District that was laid out in 1905 with innovative features such as: large front yard setbacks, lots 50 feet wide, underground utilities, and no alleys." Taking it's name from a ridge that formerly overlooked Jackson Park, this neighborhood is home to mainly single family residences, each unique and many designed in one of a number of different styles of architecture popular at the time, ranging from American Four Square to Classical Revival, Queen Anne to Dutch Colonial, and Tudor to Prairie School, among others.
