Irving Park is one of 77 officially designated Chicago community area
located on the Northwest Side. It is bounded by the Chicago River on the
east, the Milwaukee Road railroad tracks on the west, Addison Street on the
south and Montrose Avenue on the north, west of Pulaski Road stretching to
encompass the region between Belmont Avenue on the south and, roughly,
Leland Avenue on the north. It is named after the American author Washington
Old Irving Park, bounded by Montrose Avenue, Pulaski Road, Addison Street
and Cicero Avenue, has a variety of housing stock, with Queen Anne,
Victorian, and Italianate homes, a few farmhouses and numerous bungalows.
The CTA Blue Line runs through this neighborhood, with stops at Addison,
Irving Park/Pulaski, and Montrose.
Irving Park's development began in 1843 when Major Noble purchased a
160-acre (65 ha) tract of land from Christopher J. Ward, upon which Noble
established a farm. The boundaries of that farm today would be Montrose
Avenue to the north, Irving Park Road to the South, Pulaski Road to the east
and Kostner Street to the West. Major Noble’s house on the East side of
Elston just south of Montrose doubled as the Buckthorn Tavern, serving
travelers coming to and from the city of Chicago along the North West Plank
Road (Elston). After many years of successful farming Noble sold the farm
and retired to McHenry County. Four men from New York, Charles T. Race, John
S. Brown, Adelbert E Brown and John Wheeler, purchased the farm in 1869 for
$20,000 USD. Shortly thereafter they purchased an additional 80-acre (32 ha)
tract immediately south of the Noble farm from John Gray[disambiguation
needed ] for $25,000 USD. This parcel, bounded by Irving Park on the north,
Grace on the south, Pulaski on the east and Kostner on the west was part of
his original 320-acre (130 ha) farm. The intention of the men was to
continue farming, but after seeing the success of suburban communities which
had recently opened for settlement, they decided to subdivide their land and
create an exclusive settlement, seven miles (11 km) from the city.
An agreement was reached with the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad allowing
their trains to stop in Irving Park if the developers would build a station.
This was done, and this station, still at the same location, continues to
serve neighborhood residents today. The original name chosen for the new
suburb was "Irvington" after the author Washington Irving, but it was
discovered that another town in Illinois had already used the same name, so
the name of Irving Park was adopted.
The original developers all built substantial mansions along Irving Park
Boulevard between 1870 and 1874. All have since been razed, with the
exception of the Steven A. Race mansion, which was moved at the turn of the
century and now stands at 3945 N. Tripp. Another early home, built for
Erastus Brown, father of John and Adalbert, also remains at 3812 N. Pulaski
Road although greatly altered. The Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which was
watched from the cupolas of several area homes, brought a new influx of
residents who built many unique, but slightly less pretentious homes.
In 1872, the area’s first church, the Dutch Reformed Church and Society of
Irving Park was constructed on the southeast corner of Keeler Avenue and
Belle Plaine[disambiguation needed ]. It remained the only house of worship
for thirteen years. The building was completely remodeled in 1908, according
to plans by noted architect Elmer C. Jensen. Jensen's spectactular personal
residence in the Colonial Revival style built in 1905 still stands in the
Old Irving Park neighborhood on North Lowell Avenue. By the turn of the
century, congregations representing the Episcopalians, Methodists, Disciples
of Christ, Catholics and Baptists had been established.
