What Makes Irving Park Unique?

  • Race House - This is the only remaining structure associated with the family that founded the village of Irving Park. This brick Italianate house, built for Stephen A. Race, is also representative of the area's early residential development prior to its annexation to Chicago in 1889. The building originally was sited on a spacious lot fronting on IrvingPark Road, a former Indian trail. It was moved to its present location in 1905, at which time several modifications were made.
  • The Whistle Stop Inn - is a two story building in Chicago, Illinois that held a variety of businesses, and now houses the Irving Park Historical Society. Built in 1889, it represents a type of intimate neighborhood store front that was common, but is now rare. The Whistle Stop Inn was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1990.
  • Horner Park -  at nearly 55 acres - is one of the largest parks on the North Side and boasts five softball fields, four football/soccer fields, four outdoor basketball standards, five tennis courts, a playground, a relaxing nature area and plenty of open green space for picnics and fun.
  • Corus Bank Building - this is the most distinctive building at the six-corner intersection at Damen, Lincoln and Irving Park.
  • George Grant Elmslie - designed the Peoples Gas Irving Park Neighborhood Store (4839 W. Irving Park Road), which was built in 1926. Created so the Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company could promote the newly developed technologies for gas home appliances, it has since become an Irving Park landmark.
