Avenue Historic District
This area was the site of the 1812 Fort Dearborn Massacre.
After the Chicago fire, such residents as the Armour, Field, and
Pullman families made this the city's most fashionable neighborhood.
Prairie Avenue aristocrats worshipped at nearby 2nd
Presbyterian Church at 1936 S. Michigan Avenue. Its breathtaking
Tiffany windows are among Chicago's hidden treasures.
1855 S. Indiana Ave.
Chicago's oldest building (c.1836), it was moved to its present
location in 1977 from the 4500-block of South Wabash.
1800 S. Prairie Ave.
Restored as a museum, it's one of many mansions that lined this
street in the late 1800's when Chicago's wealthiest lived here.
2401 S. Wabash Ave.
The home of Chicago's oldest African-American congregation, formed
within the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
(While the 'L' travels through this neighborhood, these landmarks
are not in close proximity to a station.)
