Old Town Architecture Tour by Brick of Chicago
Old Town is one of Chicago’s most unique neighborhoods, with a blend of Victorian workers cottages, unique midcentury buildings, and massive modern homes. First built up pre-fire by German immigrants, Old Town came to fame in the postwar years as a neighborhood of artists and preservation-minded homeowners – a complicated history that includes the destructive forces of fire and urban renewal, and the creative forces of eccentrics and star-chitects.
About Brick of Chicago Tours: Chicago is a city built out of brick, of course, along with stone, wood, glass, and steel.
But Chicago is also built of so much more: It is built of history, people, stories, policy, and fashions, marvels of engineering and forces of nature.
On a Brick of Chicago neighborhood walking tour, you’ll learn how all of these elements come together to make Chicago one of the most interesting and dynamic cities in the world. Afterwards, you’ll never look at the built world (or the humble brick) the same way again!
