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.
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.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. Another early home, built for Erastus Brown, father of John and Adalbert, also remains at 3812 N. 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.West Walker is located between Montrose Avenue and Irving Park Road and is characterized by large single family homes in late Victorian, Foursquare and Revival styles.The area south of Irving Park Road was developed by Samuel Gross and was known as "Gross Boulevard addition to Irving Park".Over 200 homes had been built in the original subdivision within the first twenty years.
Several additions to Irving Park had greatly increased the original 240-acre (97 ha) suburb.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 Avenue.It remained the only house of worship for thirteen years.Several large apartment buildings, featuring elaborate wrought-iron fencing, fountains and terra cotta details were constructed primarily north of Irving Park Boulevard.The depression and war years saw many of the larger homes converted into rooming houses and two family homes.The 1880s found residents beginning to miss some of advantages they had left behind in the city, and in 1889 the community, along with the rest of Jefferson Township, was annexed to Chicago.
