The Mother’s Day House Walk will be a House Walk-By and will feature a week of programming, beginning Saturday, May 7.
For the first time in the walk’s 47-year history, participants will explore the Oakton Historic District. Often called the bungalow district, it includes architectural gems primarily built between 1920 and 1930 in the popular architectural styles of the time. Examples of Chicago Bungalow, Tudor, Colonial revivals, and Craftsman styles can be found throughout this residential district.
This year, the History Center will have self-guided tours (House Walk-By), a Zoom presentation with preservation experts, homeowners, and architects, a lecture about the CTA Yellow Line and docent-led walking tours.
