Photo by Terry Tatum, CCL, 2003 This group of twenty Italianate-style row houses in the Lincoln Park neighborhood was designed by one of Chicago's earliest important architects. They were conceived as a unified composition with similar incised window hoods and a common wood cornice with brackets and paneling. The row houses are among the earliest and largest-surviving groups of masonry construction built after the City of Chicago banned wood-frame construction. A similar group of Italianate-style row houses, also designed by Burling in 1875, are located on nearby Burling Street and have been designated as the Burling Row House District.
