16th annual Edgewater housewalk

Edgewater Historical Society

Twin homes on the tour designed by the noted architect Walter Burley Griffin will be among the nine vintage residences open for touring on Sunday during a housewalk in the Edgewater neighborhood. The homes are in an area developed in the 1890s called Magnolia Glen.

Griffin was the construction supervisor for many of Frank Lloyd Wright's early designs, notes the Landmarks Division of the Chicago Department of Planning and Development.
Hours are noon to 4 p.m. Tours begin at Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1244 W. Thorndale. Tickets are $20.
